Course Resources and Reserves

Legnato, the library's course reserve system, will help your students connect to and engage with the library's resources while helping you efficiently manage and assess course materials term and after term. These pages will provide up-to-date information on how to create and submit course reading lists with Leganto and link them to Blackboard.

Spring/Summer 2022 Update

  • 2 Hour Course Reserves are available: The default loan period for all reserves will once again be 2 hours. 1 Day loans are available if requested.
  • Building Access: The library is open. All items can be picked up at the Information Desk. 
  • Item Limits Per List: If you are submitting lists for staff to process, for timely list completion, please try to keep your initial list to 50 items or less. Faculty can also add additional citations to their list on their own once the list is created. 

Submit your reading list through Blackboard

There are 3 steps to complete in order to submit and make your course readings available to students though our Resources and Reserve system Leganto. 

  1. Login to your Blackboard Course site and add the 'Library Resource List' Tool Link to your course menu.
  2. You MUST add the tool link to your course in order for students to access any files on the reading list. These are restricted for users in your course.
  3. Launch the Tool Link and create your resource list or attach a word document with citations and send it to the library to review. 
  4. Once library staff have prepared your list, it will be published and available for students to see it in Blackboard.
  5. You can access any list you've created directly in Leganto even if you don't have a Blackboard site.

For detailed instructions on creating your reading list please explore the pages in this guide.
