Leganto is automatically added to Brightspace for all classes. CityU recommends 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 Keeping links out of the course shell also results in less instances of broken or outdated links.
Program managers are responsible for adding, editing, deleting, or changing resources in the Master Reading List (MasterRL) based on course changes and updates.
Each course at CityU has a MasterRL containing resources (both Required and Recommended) that is copied to all sections of that course. Only program directors/managers and library staff can see the MasterRL. These lists are copied over on a quarter-by-quarter basis.
Program Directors/Managers will see their MasterRLs on their Leganto landing page. If you do not see a MasterRL for a course you manage, please contact the course resource coordinator via email@example.com and they will remedy the issue.
Under no circumstances should Program Managers, Directors, or their admin create new MasterRLs.
Edits made to the MasterRL will be reflected in the subsequent quarter’s section Reading List. After changes to a MasterRL are made, please make sure to press the blue “Library Review” button.
When Program Directors/Managers make changes to a MasterRL, they should finish by clicking the blue “Library Review” button.
Library staff is alerted and reviews the MasterRL to check the metadata (verify the ISBN, links, sticker price, etc.) as well as determine if the resources are available electronically through the library or must be purchased by students.
For information on how to best build and organize a Reading List, please see the Reading Lists Best Practices box, below.
As a program manager or director, you are responsible for ensuring that core resources for your courses have accurate and detailed reading lists. Materials that are required and that are linked in shells should be on the reading lists.
You can maximize the benefits of the reading lists by following these best practices. These tips will benefit you but they will also maintain consistency for students throughout programs and courses at CityU.
The short videos below will walk you through common tasks used in managing Reading Lists, including adding web and library resources, uploading documents, and saving items to your personal collection for later use. For the best user experience, view these videos in full-screen mode.
