Leganto: Create E-Resource Lists

Library Guide on how to use Leganto to create e-resource lists for subjects.

Add a Record Manually

You may need to add records manually, if for example you want to add a new eReserve request, or a website that is not listed in Primo.

eBook chapters will also have to be manually entered to your lists for Library staff to process.

To add a record manually select the '+' (Add Citation) button in your Reading List and then select the Create tab.

Enter the details of your requested material, specifying what Type of material it is (i.e. Book Chapter, Electronic Article, Website, etc.) and from which Source it is located (i.e. url).


Select which Reading List Module you wish to add the material to and select Add.

The requested item will now appear in the Module you selected.


Adding a new eReserve Reading

If your manual record is a new eReserve reading, you will need to add a tag to the citation to indicate to the the Library that you need a scan done of a chapter or article that isn't available electronically.

After adding the record manually to your list, select Add tags in the record.

Put your cursor in the Add tags field and then select Digisation required. Then select Save.

To enable Library processing for the material, select the ellipses ' . . . ' button and select the option Send to Library.

The status of the material will now go from Being prepared to Sent and Library staff will process your request and make the item available for your list, when it is available in Primo.
