Key features of the reading list service

The University Library is committed to working with teaching staff to identify and provide resources which support teaching and learning. The University uses Leganto reading list software to create and maintain reading lists.

Key features of the software:
  • Reading lists can contain a variety of resource types: books, electronic books, reports, journal articles, audio-visual materials, images, websites, blogs, newspaper articles and more.
  • Lists can be structured in the same way as module handbooks, for example weekly reading or reading by topic.
  • Links to digitised materials (book chapters, journal articles etc) can be added to your reading list.
  • Items on reading lists can be tagged as essential, recommended or further reading.
  • Reading lists can be updated while modules are in progress - a great feature for fast moving areas.
  • Teaching staff can add notes to direct students to specific parts of a learning resource.
  • Students can mark items as read and make suggestions of other relevant materials to be added to a reading list.
  • Reading lists can be exported to EndNote to facilitate the production of a reference list / bibliography.
  • Teaching staff will have access to statistical information to help them understand how their reading list resources are being used.
