Here you can amend the item type, for example specifying Book Chapter if there is a specific chapter required for reading. We can also digitise individual chapters and so that they are accessible directly from Leganto in a PDF format, you can find information how to do this here

Add Notes

If you want to add notes to an item, click on the item in the list to open a pop-up window with additional information such as links and item availability. Here you can add notes: Public notes are visible to anyone viewing the list and Private notes are only visible to you.

Move sections and items

You can change the order in which sections and items appear by individually dragging and dropping them into new parts of the list.

To reorder sections and items in bulk you can use the Bag It function:

  • Click on the item options button for the sections or items you wish to move and choose Bag It.

Adding a due date

It is possible to add a due date to a particular item on your list to let students know it needs to be read by a particular date: 

  • Click on the individual item within your reading list and scroll down to the Due Date section and select the appropriate date from the calendar.

You can add other people as collaborators to your lists, in order to allow them to add and edit items. 

  • Click on the Collaborators tab in the reading list's side-pane and click Manage collaborators

There are two collaborator levels:

  • Manager – can edit the list, add collaborators, or delete the list.
  • Editor – can edit the list, but cannot add collaborators or delete the list.

New collaborators have the default level of Editor, but the list Manager can re-assign levels.

Removing yourself as a collaborator from a list

If you are an instructor or a collaborator on a Reading List and you don't wish to be, you can remove yourself from the list:

  • On the right hand side of the page select Collaborators and click Manage Collaborators
  • You can then remove yourself by clicking on the cross next to your name
