Leganto is a tool that enables you to easily create, maintain, evaluate, and share course reading lists. Leganto reading lists can be added to Brightspace D2L, or you can get a link to your list that can be added to your syllabus. Leganto replaces the course reserves process that has been used in the past.
You can assemble materials of all types into your course reading list -- physical books, ebooks, journal and newspaper articles, websites, and streaming media. You can build this list by yourself or collaborate with your subject librarian.

Issues accessing a Leganto reading list:
If you or your students are unable to access your course's Leganto reading list and are seeing an "Illegal Institution" error, it may be that you didn't set your reading list to open as an external resource. Make sure you have followed Step 2 from this page in D2L.
Issues accessing a citation:
If you or your students are having difficulty accessing library-owned material, it is either a browser issue or we have temporarily lost access. Try clearing your cache or switching to another browser first. If problems persist, contact your subject librarian.
