The Leganto interface can be viewed in either Welsh or English. To select your language preference, click on the language option in the top-right corner of the page.
All the lists you manage or contribute to will appear in My Lists. Adding your reading lists to this page allows you to quickly find and edit them in one place.
My Collection is your own personal citation library and can be a starting point to gather together items you may wish to use in your reading lists. You can save items here for quick access to add to reading lists later. You can find instructions on how to add items to a reading list from My Collection in the Create
section of this guide.
To keep track of the items in your personal collection you can add tags to filter them. Any tags and notes added in My Collection are personal to you and will not be visible when the item is added to a reading list.
