If you wish to share your library items between your and LMS accounts, see our Sharing your Library between your GoReact accounts guide.

What can I do with the GoReact Library?

The Library is your one-stop location for managing all of your media, rubrics, markers, and documents. To open the library, click the library button at the top right.


In the Library, you can:

  • Create, upload, edit, copy, move, or delete library items.
  • Access your organization's shared library.
  • Set up Collections of library items.
    • Collections make it easy for you to organize your library by course, topic, or any way you'd like.
    • Share content through Collections
      • Create your own collections and share them with other GoReact users - they will have access to all items in that collection. See our guide on Library Sharing.
      • Copy library items that were shared with you to make your own edits.

    Library Organization

    On the left sidebar of your Library, you will see two main sections: Collections and Content Type.  Collections allow you to organize your content.

    Content Type
    The Content Type section acts as a filter. Depending on which Content Type you have selected, that is the type of content you that will show up in your Library in any given collection. The Content Types you will see are Media, Rubrics, Markers, Documents, and Assignments.


    All users’ libraries include the following Collections:

    • My Collection - This is where all of your content will save by default, if you don’t organize it otherwise. This collection is only visible to you and cannot be shared with others, but individual library items in this collection can be shared.
    • Mine (Old Library) - For long-time GoReact users, you will see a "Mine (Old Library)" tab in your library. This contains all of the contents that you previously saw under the "Mine" tab in the old version of the GoReact Library.
      We will eventually remove the old library collection, so we recommend you move/copy any content here into another Collection within the Library.
    • Organization collection - This collection is visible to all GoReact users (with a role Instructor and above) that belong to your organization.
    • My History - This collection is a record of all the things you've created, added, or uploaded to your assignments, courses, and library.
    • Custom Collections - You can create up to 25 custom collections in your Library to help organize your content however you'd like. 

    Please Note

    For any users that have linked their LMS account with their account because you use GoReact on both platforms, you will notice that the My Collection and the Mine (Old Library) collections display library items from both the and LMS organization that you are linked to. Note that linked users will only see the organization tab that is tied to the account you are currently logged in with, but you will see all of your custom collections from either organization.


    Managing Collections

    To create, edit, remove, hide or rearrange the order of your collections click the Manage Collections (gear) icon at the top left of the Library.



    • Click and drag on the dots to the left of each collection to move them up or down in the list.
    • Click the Edit (pencil) icon to rename a collection.
    • Click the checkbox to the right of any item to hide this collection from your main library view.  
    • Create new collections by clicking Add New Collection.

    Click Save & Close when you are done.


    You cannot hide or rename "My Collection." The organization collection can be hidden but not renamed.

    To further organize your collections, you can add folders within your collections by clicking the +Folder button at the bottom.


    Sharing Library Collections
    When creating or editing a collection, you can also add collaborators to that collection by entering their email address in the invitation line.  This must be the email address associated with their GoReact account.  This lets you share your collections with your colleagues.


    Managing individual Library items
    Any item you've added to your library can be previewed, edited, copied, deleted or moved from one folder to another, to the root level of a collection, or from one collection to another.  To do so, click on the ellipses next to each item and select the desired action. 


    You can also use the Multi-select option at the top right to copy, move, or remove multiple items at a time.  Simply turn the Multi-select toggle on at the top right and check the box next to the items in question, then click the ellipses and choose the desired action.


    Sorting your Library items
    You can sort the items in your Library alphabetically A-Z, Z-A, or by the last modified date.  To do so, select the desired option at the bottom right.
