Leganto Reading Lists for Students

What is 'My Collection'

My Collection is your own personal Leganto library. You can use this space to save interesting resources that you would like to access later. These resources can be anything from a book, a journal article, a YouTube video, a webpage, etc.

My collection

You can add items from MultiSearch using the ADD ITEMS + button or you can add web resources using the Cite It! bookmarklet (see instructions on the following pages). 

Organising Resources in Your Collection

To keep track of the resources in your personal collection, you can add tags that make sense to you, and then filter by them. 

Step 1 - Click on the individual record title, and then click on the Add tags to collection link below the title;

Adding tags to a reading


Step 2 - A new tag is started every time you enter a comma or space, so if your tag consists of 2 words, make sure you include an underscore to connect them. If you have already added tags to items in your collection, the list of previously added tags appears in a drop-down when you click in the tags field;
