Using Leganto: For Staff

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

Publishing your list

When you are happy with the content of your list you need to publish your list so that students are able to see the content in your Interact site.

If you want to stage the readings so that they become available at different times throughout the session, you can send your list to the Library throughout the session.

Before you publish your list you should check that all the links are working, and you should also check the status of each item. If the status of a reading is not showing as Complete then the description will be visible but the reading will not be accessible until it has been processed and completed by the Library.

Publishing your list is a 2-step process:

1. Sending the List to the Library

Because Leganto communicates with the Library system, and because the Library staff check reading lists for broken links and for eReserve, Reserve and new book requests, you need to send the list to the Library before it is published. 

  • Click on the blue Send List button at the top of your Reading List.

The Library will send email notifications to you when the readings have been verified, and will contact you if there are any questions.

If you make any changes to the list in the future, you will need to Send the List again.


Publishing your List

Once you have sent the list to the Library, you can publish it, so that students can view it in your Interact site. You don't need to wait for any confirmation from the Library to do this.

  • Click on the ellipsis ( ... ) button at the top left of the reading list and select Publish.


  • The Published List will default to Course students (ie. students in the subject) unless you select otherwise.

Make sure your Reading list tool is visible in your Interact site, and you're ready to go!
