Leganto is LJMU’s new reading list management system. It provides an efficient and easy way to compile and publish reading lists. Part of the Library Services Platform and fully integrated with Canvas it provides students and staff with easy access to all course materials through a single interface.
Academic staff who have been testing the new system commented:
‘This system is so much more intuitive than the old one and worked really smoothly – I like it a lot’
‘The display felt familiar … very intuitive.’
With Leganto, you can assemble materials of all types; physical & e-books, online or digitised book chapters, scholarly articles, videos, electronic resources and any other type of material, to create a flexible and interactive reading list.
The new reading list system is now live and the link to lists are embedded into the menu for each module in Canvas.
Please note that if you have embedded any links from the previous system (KeyLinks) in other areas of the Canvas module or elsewhere you will need to update them as they will no longer work.
