Unit readings service

Log in to Leganto to create and edit your reading list

Creating a reading list for your unit ensures students have access to the required resources. To meet copyright and licensing obligations, copied book chapters and journal articles must be managed by the Library rather than uploaded directly to iLearn.

The Library provides reading lists via Leganto, a reading list management system that enables you to create dynamic lists from a range of sources including the Library collection. You can also request new material and identify items to be added to the 3 hour loan Reserve collection.

For more comprehensive information on Leganto, see our guide.

Reading lists for Session 3, 2019 should be completed by Monday, 4 November, 2019

NOTE: Reading lists received after these dates may not be processed for the beginning of Session. The Library requires a number of weeks to purchase new resources.

Reading lists

Reading lists can be created in Leganto anytime, anywhere. Leganto reading lists are automatically rolled over each session with convenors receiving a notification from the system.

Reading list items include:

  • Journal articles or book chapters
  • Ebooks and streaming video
  • Links to freely available online resources (including open access resources)
  • Physical items (e.g. books, DVDs) in the Library collection

Find out how to submit your reading list in Leganto.

Reserve collection

You can nominate high demand items (such as textbooks) to be placed in the Reserve collection where items are available for 3 hour loan.

Use the 'Add to Reserve Collection' tag in Leganto to indicate which items should be moved to this collection.

If you set a prescribed textbook for your unit, add the ‘Required’ tag to this item, as this may require additional print copies to be added to the Reserve collection, and ebook copies to be managed for high use.

Please note: Turnaround times for new material and Reserve collection requests vary.
