Faculty who currently use e-reserves are encouraged to use Leganto, as well as any faculty member who would like to utilize reading lists. Using the online Leganto system, attendees can begin to assemble materials of all types – physical books, online or digitized book chapters, scholarly articles, videos, newspaper articles, websites or any other type of material – to create a structured, comprehensive resource list. TLT staff will walk you through the getting started with Leganto and point out important features of the tool to support teaching and learning.
