Exporting Lists

You can export a list from Accelerated Reader Bookguide as either

  • a tab-delimited export text (.txt) file or
  • an HTML file.

The text (.txt) export file can be opened and saved in a spreadsheet program. An HTML (.html) export file can be saved as a web page that can then be posted on your school's website.

See Searching for Books and Quizzes and Book and Quiz Lists for more detailed information on how to find and include information on the list that you want to export.

Follow these steps to export a list:

  1. From the Accelerated Reader Bookguide Home page, click List Management.
  2. On either the List Management or Active List page, click Export. The Book List Export page opens.
