The 2-minute video provides an overview of how Leganto works and what it can do for you.
Leganto is a collaborative web app for creating and managing course readings and resource material. It helps instructors select resources from a variety of sources, involves library staff to manage access and availability, and provides students with direct access to the readings.
Students and instructors login to Leganto through their Blackboard courses: look for the link to "Readings & Resources".
To make course readings available to students, you must do these 4 things:
The first one can take some time; the other three are just a couple of mouse-clicks.
The library does all the rest to make the readings available.
Once you get more comfortable, you're going to want to add features, and you can move down the menu on the right for more advanced options that will improve the experience for your students.
Don't panic - we're right here. Librarians and support staff are ready to do what we can to make your lists work.
From our Help page, click "Booking Page" and choose the link to book a 30-minute "Creating Reading Lists with Leganto" virtual appointment with a librarian. Select a date and time that works for you. We'll walk you through it and answer your questions.
If you think you need longer, let us know when you book and we'll extend the time limit.
Send your syllabus to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get it started for you. You'll still be able to make updates or modifications later.
Email any question or concern to email@example.com. Your message will be directed to the best person to give you a speedy and accurate response.
Leganto lists are designed to maintain a conversation between the instructor(s) and the library. When you click "Library Discussion" in your list, the person working on your list is notified that there's a message. You can do this at the list level for general questions, or the citation level to discuss a specific item. This keeps all our conversations in context, so we don't waste time finding the item in question and remembering what was said previously.
When you receive a response, you'll see it in your "Notifications" bell icon in the top right corner of your Leganto screen. Click the bell to see all your messages and links to the specific part where they appear. You also receive a daily email when you have new notifications.
