The Cite It! tool is a bookmarklet that can be added to your browser bookmark bar so that you can add resources to your lists on the go. Cite It! streamlines the process of adding web pages and streamed videos (i.e. YouTube video) to a list by gathering data from the page and pre-filling some of the citation fields for you.
If the item is held by the Library (i.e. through Primo Search or a library database), use the instructions on the Use Primo Search page to add the resource to the list.
1. Select your initials in the top, right corner of the Leganto platform.
Select Leganto Cite It!
2. Select the Cite It! icon.
Drag and drop the icon on your Bookmarks toolbar.
1. Open the webpage you wish to add to the reading list.
2. Select Cite It!
3. Edit the record.
Add other details as required i.e. author, publication date etc.
4. Select the reading list and section.
The item will be added to your nominated list.
Note: if you find the CiteIt! tool isn't working as expected, try deleting it from the bookmark bar and add it again.
The Cite It! tool will retrieve available data from websites (not PDFs) and use that information to add resources to a list.
When Cite It! won't retrieve website data as expected, there are a few possible solutions.
If Cite It! still won’t successfully retrieve website data, add the resources manually. See, Use manual entry.
Use the Cite It! tool with websites such as Amazon and Google Books to request readings from new resources which may be added to the Library collection.
Once the readings are processed, the Library will update the citation to include a link to access the reading online. If you'd rather the item didn't appear in the list until online access is available, use the Suggest New Material form to place the request instead.
