CUSU Education Rep:
“I like the labelling of 'required reading' and 'further reading', that they can specify book chapter or book (and that there's space to make comments like specifying further which pages are useful), and that they can add content notes. They're very slick and I would have found them so helpful during my degree instead of having to manually search for each book and then scanned chapters being in a different place on Moodle - so I never checked them.”
Cambridge University Libraries provide resources for teaching across the collegiate university. Library staff use taught course reading lists created by academics to purchase relevant items in the format and quantity required using parameters such as student numbers, accessibility and usage to assist them.
This is a new way of working using a system called Leganto which can easily be integrated with Moodle courses, iDiscover and Library purchasing workflows. It allows items on lists to link easily to online resources, as well as linking to the iDiscover catalogue records for print items. It encourages well-structured lists with priorities clearly signposted, and many other features to assist students and academics, whilst ensuring an efficient provision of resources by libraries.
The Library’s strategic vision is to provide an unrivalled education experience for students. The key objective is to provide Reading Lists online via Leganto for 60-70% of all taught courses’ reading lists, with a streamlined, consistent approach which encourages a healthy approach to student workload.
