About Reading List (Leganto)

Reading Listpowered by Ex Libris Leganto, is a new library service tool that helps improve the process of creating and managing course reading lists and submission of course reserves. 

Instructors can:

  • create dynamic lists of citations from a range of sources -  print or electronic Library resources, streaming video, websites, textbooks, journals, and more
  • monitor student engagement through system analytics
  • promote student engagement by enabling features that allows students to recommend resources and post comments
  • easily update content and reuse elements or duplicate whole lists for other courses

  • have direct access to online resources such as ebooks, eJournals and databases, as well as websites and videos
