Reading Lists by Leganto: For Instructors

Reading Lists by Leganto

Instructors can use Reading Lists by Leganto to pull together valuable resources available through the Foley Library, easily collect online content, and even add your own files. These resources can be grouped and organized into lists that can then be shared with a specific course or a large audience. Every citation can be annotated and opened for discussion, and for every course, you can access reports that show how many students have viewed the full text, ‘Liked’ an item, marked an item ‘Read It,’ and how many have commented.
