Cite it

Please note- The 'Add to my bookmarks' button will no longer work as this was linked to Talis Aspire.

Leganto works in exactly the same way but you will need to replace your old button with the new 'Cite it' tool:


The Cite It! bookmarklet enables you to collect resources such as websites, videos, journal articles, etc. and import the links into your Leganto 'My Collection' section. Follow the 3 steps below to install the bookmarklet.

Step 1 - To install the bookmarklet, click on your name on the top right of the screen and select Cite It!
