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. As Leganto is a part of the library network, the list of readings links up to the library catalogue to display the item's status in real-time. It makes searching and reviewing module references much easier for students.

 

A webinar will be organized before the new AY2020/2021 begins.

 

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.
