About Leganto reading lists

Introducing Leganto.

Leganto is the University of Plymouth's reading list management system. It provides an efficient and easy way to compile and publish reading lists. Fully integrated with Primo and Moodle, it provides students with easy access to all course materials through a single interface.

With Leganto, you can assemble materials of all types; physical & e-books, online or digitised book chapters, scholarly articles, videos, images, electronic resources and any other type of material, to create a flexible and interactive reading list.

How to access Leganto.

Existing reading lists are accessible from the reading list block on the DLE module page. Once you reach the reading list you may need to log in if it shows Guest in the top right corner. To do this, click Guest, select Login from the dropdown and use your University username and password.

You can also access reading lists via this link . This link should be used if you wish to create a list. Make sure you log in as described above.

If you find that, once logged in, you do not have editing permissions, contact your Information Specialist direct or via .
