Extra guidance on how to freshen up and better promote Leganto to students
Key messages – how to make students more familiar with Leganto / Reading Lists Online
This first document contains key messages for library staff who use Leganto, on how we can help students become more familiar with Leganto (Reading Lists Online, as it is known to them!). If you would like to consider any using anything in the document, especially in support of your planned induction activities, you are most welcome to. Catching our students' attention at the start of the academic year is a great way to introduce new concepts and systems to them, that hopefully they will benefit from over the course of Michaelmas Term and beyond.
Next Level Leganto – getting your lists looking and feeling better for your students
This second document contains practical advice, tips and tricks for library staff on how to get your Leganto lists looking and feeling better for your students. There is no expectation on any library (or their staff) to follow this advice to the letter: it is there to help guide you if you have the time, capacity, and desire to potentially tidy or add to your existing lists ahead of the start of Michaelmas Term when we are actively checking and updating reading lists, or to act as recommended guidelines when setting up a new list.
Student pro tips for using Reading Lists Online
This third document is a four slide PowerPoint presentation directly aimed at students - it gives three practical 'pro tips' on how to make Reading Lists Online work for the student to personalise content and save their time. Please do incorporate this document into any library website (or Moodle), presentation or information resource - the wider we get these messages out, the bigger the benefits for our students' awareness!
