Library Services - Leganto – a Reading List Plug-in for Library System

 

A new plug-in, Leganto, will be available for the Alma library system to help instructors create Reading List to share with students in Moodle’s course.

It makes searching and reviewing module references much easier for students.

In the first year of the implementation, library staff will be enrolled in each Module in Moodle to prepare the Reading List. Library staff will follow-up with the library collection status.
