Leganto is automatically added to Brightspace for all classes. CityU recommends that all required and recommended readings are listed on the Leganto Reading List. Links to resources in the course shell are not monitored or maintained by the library. By instituting 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 Keeping links out of the course shell also results in fewer broken or outdated links.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. A snapshot of the MasterRL is published each quarter for students to view.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and they will remedy the issue.
Under no circumstances should Program Managers, Directors, or their admin create new MasterRLs.
*NEW* Master Reading Lists are now perpetually unlocked and available for editing. This means that edits can be made to Reading Lists all the way up to the time they are published for students to view, one month before the quarter begins.
To make changes for upcoming quarters:
Important note: Edits cannot be made outside of these windows. It is the responsibility of the Program Director/Manager to plan course updates accordingly. Library staff will not make edits to these lists outside of the above listed timeframes, so please do not ask. Any discrepancies between the course content and the Reading Lists that are not addressed by the above posted deadlines must be communicated by Program Directors/Managers directly to their instructors prior to the start of the quarter.
Program managers and directors are responsible for ensuring that courses have accurate and detailed reading lists for core resources. Materials that are required and that are linked in shells should be on the reading lists. Faculty may add supplemental resources to section lists for courses they are teaching.
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.
