To add this shortcut,

  1. Discuss with community and get community consensus to add icon
  2. Edit MediaWiki:Proofreadpage_index_template page on your Wikisource.
  3. Add following code to the above template:
    <indicator name="bookreader">[[File:BookReader-favicon.svg|18px|link={{fullurl:toollabs:bookreader/{{CONTENTLANG}}/{{{n|{{PAGENAMEE}}}}}}}|Open file in BookReader]]</indicator>
