Reusing Reading Lists

If the unit has run in a previous session and had a reading list in Leganto, the Library will roll over this list for use in the current teaching session.

Unit convenors are assigned to these rolled over reading lists based on the information sourced from iTeach. Once you are assigned to a reading list you will receive a notification email with a link to your reading list. 

Review the reading list and update as required. Once it is ready, click Send List and the Library will process your reading list. 

Library Discussion

If you have any questions or comments for the Library you can use the Library Discussion feature.
