Using Leganto: For Staff: Use Blank Form

When to use the Blank Form

You may need to use the 'Blank Form' option to add an item manually if:

  • the item is a website or online resource that is not in Primo Search, or
  • you would like to request a new eReserve reading (see, Add eReserve & Reserve Items), or
  • you would like to recommend a new resource for the collection, or
  • you would like to add recordings made using Charles Sturt University Replay (Panopto) to your reading list. 

Please note: Blank Form is a 'last resort' for adding items to your list - always check Primo first!

Add a record manually using the blank form


1. Select + (Add Citation) from the top right of the list.
   2. Select the Blank Form option.

3. Select the Create tab.

Use the Type dropdown to select the resource type (i.e. book chapter, article, website etc.)

Enter the details of the item.


4. Paste a stable URL to the resource into the Source field so students can access the item online. 
PDF documents cannot be uploaded directly to Leganto. See, Leganto & Copyright and Creating links to resources.


5. Nominate your preferred reading list and section using the Add To List drop-down scope.

Select Add & Close.
