Managing Your Lists

Managing Reading Lists - Leganto for Faculty

What is it? 

Leganto is CityU’s central repository of course resources which promotes collaboration between program directors, instructors, and librarians to create and publish course Reading Lists.  

With Leganto, faculty can: 

  • Quickly add resources from the web, drag and drop library resources, or upload files to a centralized Reading List 

  • Add or edit resources to the section Reading List at any point in the quarter 

  • Easily reuse content in subsequent terms by saving citations in the Collection area 

How do I gain access? 

Instructors will gain access to their section Reading Lists when their Brightspace course shells are available (17 days before the start of the quarter).  Reading List appears as a tab at the top of the page. Once students have access to the course shell, they will also access their Reading List this way.  

Is use of Leganto Reading Lists required? 

Leganto is automatically added to Brightspace for all classes. We recommend that all required and recommended readings are listed on the Leganto reading list. Any links to resources in the course shell are not monitored or maintained by the library. By instituting Leganto Reading Lists across all courses, we improve the student experience by standardizing the method in which students access materials. Keeping links out of the course shell also results in less instances of broken or outdated links.
