What is Leganto?

The Glucksman Library provides Leganto reading lists to all academic staff and students at the University of Limerick.

Leganto is integrated with Brightpsace and is used to create reading lists and provide direct links to the library's collections - simplifying access to the course material for your students from your module site. 

You can add a diverse range of resources into a single list including electronic articles, ebooks, and print books from the library's collections, videos from YouTube or streaming media, digitized content, links to resources available online, lecture slides, etc.

Many leading universities use Leganto and the benefits include 

  • curated lists of recommended readings are provided for each module
  • annual roll-over of content
  • linking students directly to University-subscribed and owned material in the library's collections
  • fair and equal access to reading material for students on campus and studying remotely 
  • academic referencing is simplified for students through the provision of full bibliographic citations for reading material
  • measure student engagement with course materials using analytics

Faculty are invited to build their reading lists, update existing content, or contact the library for recommendations on how to use Leganto.
