You can add resources to individual sections by clicking the + button on the right, this will open a search box allowing you to add items from LibrarySearch. You can find items by searching for the title, author, ISBN, ISSN, and keywords. Results will appear in the dialog box below your search query. To add an item to your Reading List, simply click Add.

The Leganto Cite It! bookmarklet allows you to collect resources while browsing the web. This allows you to add citations from scholarly databases, publishers’ websites, online bookstores, and even YouTube. If the Library has the item you discovered elsewhere, a note to that effect will appears with the item’s details.

The option to instal the bookmarklet can be found by clicking on your name to the top-right. To instal it simply drag and drop the below link to your bookmarks panel.

When you find an item to add to your Reading List, click on Cite It! from your browser bookmarks bar and check the citation information is correct. Items saved from Cite It! can be added directly to a Reading List, or added to My Collection for later use.

You can add descriptive tags to items in your Reading Lists. This is a useful way to indicate to students whether something is essential reading or not, or if they should read an item in advance of your next lecture or tutorial. There are four tags to choose from, displayed below.
