Submit your reading list to the Library
Leganto, also known as the "Course Reading List" in Bruin Learn, is a tool that allows instructors to create lists of resources for their courses and share these lists efficiently with their students and Library staff. Leganto reading lists can include both Library-owned texts and external resources such as websites, videos, audio files, and more. All Leganto reading lists that are submitted to the Library are processed as course reserve requests. Starting Winter Quarter 2024, Leganto will be the only method through which UCLA Library will accept course reserve requests.
All items added to your Leganto reading list can be accessed by your students directly from your course site, allowing them to locate their course materials in just a couple of clicks.
All items added to Leganto reading lists are shared instantly with the Library's internal system, creating a link between your course and the Library. When Library staff process reading lists, instructors are able to see updates - such as those related to item availability and purchase request status - in real time.
If an item is already owned by UCLA Library, instructors can add it to their reading list directly from the Library catalog - no more need to manually fill out lengthy request forms.
All reading lists made in Leganto are saved, allowing instructors to reuse reading lists in future quarters.
Instructors are able to see the number of students who have accessed each resource in their reading list, as well as the specific ways students have interacted with each resource (views, downloads, comments, etc). This allows instructors to easily track student engagement with the course material.
