How to use the Reading List Service (Leganto)

This guide gives you step-by-step instructions on how to access and create your course reading lists in the Reading List Service through D2L

Overview

The Reading List Service (Leganto) is a collaborative web app that simplifies the creation and availability of Course Reading Lists. The Reading List Service is integrated with the library collection and supports multiple interfaces to enable instructors to add materials to their reading lists from different sources such as the library’s collections, databases, websites, bookstores, and the instructor's reference manager. The service then provides students with direct access to the readings. 

Please connect with readinglist@ucalgary.ca to use the service or questions, comments, and possible issues about the service to this email. Faculty members are encouraged to send their list of materials to this email as well for staff to create their course lists. The email can also be used to connect with Bronte Chiang, digital literacy librarian, for support on using the software in the form of demos and consultations.

"The creation of this Leganto reading list is incredibly helpful for both my students and myself as it will save me a significant amount of time. I have had comments from students in the other courses that they love the Reading List Tool."
