Electronic Reserves and Reading Lists: Overview

Reading Lists by Leganto

Connecting instructors, students, and librarians with resources across campus!

No more Blackboard courses with multiple lists of suggested, recommended, and required resources. Some lists with links (may work, may not), some with suggested directions to start looking for an obscure title, and some pointing to a resource that does not exist any more.

The Reading Lists Platform by Leganto helps instructors, students, and librarians collaborate to create dynamic, interactive resource pages all in one place.

  • Link dynamic lists of resources to Blackboard courses
  • Create stand-alone lists to share
  • Live time availability information for any Gonzaga library resource
  • Easy access to database content
  • Add online content to the list
  • Usage statistics available
  • Students and instructors can develop their own personal resource collection

All Gonzaga students and employees have accounts that can be accessed directly from this link: Reading Lists by Leganto using their Gonzaga usernames and passwords to login.


Through Blackboard

Instructors can add a tool link in Blackboard courses to display lists associated with that particular course. Once in the Reading Lists program, access to the user's personal account is available as well.



  • Spring 2019 - Reading Lists by Leganto was implemented and gently rolled out to campus over the Spring semester.
  • Summer 2019 - Increased focus on accessibility and copyright issues was applied.
  • Fall 2019 - A continued rollout, along with full marketing and training, is planned for Fall semester.
