1. Click the Reference Type button. Additional fields will appear.

2. Enter in Title for a Book or Name for a Course.

3. Enter in the Author(s) for a Book or Offered By for a Course.

To Access Referenced Notes from the My Notes Page:

1. Click My Stuff on the Menu bar.

2. Select Notes.

When a reference has been added to a Note it has a distinct layout on the My Notes page. Here are some additional useful features:

My Notes Page with Take Notes Combo

1. Note Shows an Association Tile – Notes that include a reference to a Book or Course have a small tile to the right of the main Note tile. This smaller tile indicates the Note is referencing something else in Maple.

2. Course Reference – You can tell it is referencing a Course because the Course icon appears and the Course name is to the right of that.

3. Book Reference – You can tell it is referencing a Book because the Book icon appears and the Book title is to the right of that.

4. Reference is Summarized – All of the notes related to a specific reference are bundled, so your My Notes page remains manageable. You can see how many Notes apply to a reference in the item count at the bottom of the Associated Tile.

Tip: To see all of the Notes related to a reference click the item count in the Associated Tile. You’ll also see a badge at the top of the page for any other content related to that reference, like Quotes from a Book.

Notes About a Book Page

To Access Referenced Notes from A Book or Course Page:

Tip: If the Book or Course has other Stuff related to it, you will see badges for those in the tile as well. Like the Quotes Badge in the example above.
