Using Leganto: For Staff

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

Editing the content of a record

You can edit your records, including adding tags and notes after the record has been added to your list.

  • Click on the ellipsis (...) at the right of the record you want to edit.

  • The edit box will open on the right side of screen.
  • Here you can edit any field of the record (eg. change the Source or Type). Don't forget to select Save to keep the changes you've made. If you have changed the URL in the Source field, you might also need to refresh the page, using your browser refresh button, in order to make the change "stick" in Leganto.


Adding notes to a record

You can add notes to a record - eg. instructions for students to read a specific section only. Notes can be Public - seen by anyone who can access the list - or Private - seen only by you.

  • Click on the title of the record in your Reading List.
  • For a public note, click on Add Note under the Public Notes heading.

  • Enter your note/instructions and click on Save.
  • Your note will display in double quotation marks under the details of the reading.


You can also add private notes in the same way, by clicking on Add Note under the Private Notes heading.

Removing a reading

If you decide you no longer need a reading in your list, you can delete the reading.

  • In your Reading List, click on the ellipsis ( ... ) icon at the right of the reading
  • Select Delete item and confirm you wish to delete by clicking on OK.


You can also delete an entire section (week or module): this will delete all of the readings in that section.
