Using Your Readings and Resources List: Leganto Features

Using the many features in Leganto

Your Lecturer may choose to enable different functions that exist within Leganto. Log in to your Interact2 subject site to check if your lecturer has created a Leganto reading list. If a list is available you can:

  • Click directly through to online resources
  • Mark items as read, or like items
  • Add a private note to a reading
  • Request a digitisation or loan of an item

Click to view online

To click directly through to an online resource, use the View online link beneath your reading title. This link takes you straight to the full text of your resource!

Opening the full record of an item

If you click on the title of the reading, this will open the full record of the item. From this page you can see all the information you need to create a citation for your reference list, view your reading online, or place a request on the item.

Place a digitisation or loan request

If a book is available in one of our campus libraries, you can request a chapter be digitised for you, or request a loan of the item. Just click on the title of the resource to open the full record.

Look at the request options available and select to either Submit loan request, or Submit digitisation request. Just remember that textbooks are usually high demand items, and a loan or digitisation request may not be immediately available if the book is out on loan.

Mark items as Read

To keep track of your readings as you work through your modules, mark them as read by clicking on the tick at the end of the reading title. The tick becomes blue when an item has been marked as read.

Like items

If you want to let your lecturer know what you think of a resource, you can like items! Just open the full record of the item, then click the Like icon to the right of your reading title. The Leganto record will reflect that "You like this" reading.

Add a private note to a reading

If you think a reading might be particularly useful for an assessment, or you have interesting thoughts or observations about a reading, you can add a private note to remind you later.

Click on the title you are interested in to open the full record, then click on the Add note link to open a note window. These notes are private, and can't be seen by any other user.
