District administrators can now customize the Amplify Library to build their district’s digital library. The teacher and student experience will not change.
Learn more about the Amplify Library here.
If you are a district administrator with authorization, you can customize the Grades 6–8 digital library by choosing from Amplify’s 700+ selection to build your district’s booklist. Hide books from your district’s Amplify Library to ensure that your students only see books that align with your district’s priorities.
Texts used in core lessons and units cannot be removed from the booklist.
When you click on a book, the book details will display. From the book details, click Hide this book for your district to hide the book.
A confirmation displays. Click Hide book to confirm or Cancel.
Administrators will see the hidden books in the Amplify Library as opaque with a crossed eye icon.
To unhide a book, open the book details and click on Unhide this book.
You can change the view of your library from the administrator view to the educator view. Change your view in the Reading Settings, under District Book Visibility Settings. Click Off for administrator view and see all hidden books with a crossed eye icon, or On to remove all hidden books from your view and from search results, which is the experience your educators and students will have of the Amplify Library. If any books are hidden, an info button displays next to My Library to note that the library has been customized by the district.
If an educator thinks a book should be hidden from the Amplify Library, they should reach out to their administrator.
Note: Hiding a book hides it for every school in the district that uses Amplify Library.
You can find the hidden books in the My Library section of the navigation bar.
