How to use Reading Lists by Leganto

What is Reading Lists?

Using Reading Lists, faculty can link Georgia Tech Library resources such as articles, eBooks, audio, video, and open access materials as well as external resources available on YouTube directly through Canvas. This means students have access to those resources as though they were in the Library’s catalog – no more missing or broken links, no more searching in multiple places.

Reading Lists is how faculty can put materials on Course Reserves.

Reading Lists is best used in the Chrome and Firefox browsers. Some features do not work well in Safari. 

Use the tabs on the left to learn how to:

  • Add Georgia Tech Library resources to Reading Lists
  • Add web resources to Reading Lists
  • Add your own files to Reading Lists
  • Make purchase requests
  • Manage Reading Lists
    • Associate a Reading List to multiple courses
    • Duplicate Reading Lists
    • Roll over Reading Lists
  • Communicate with librarians through Reading Lists

On this page, you can learn how to get started with Reading Lists and add it to your Canvas course.
