What is Leganto?

Leganto is an online tool for students, lecturers and librarians, that is connected to Blackboard and the search service Oria. Most university libraries in Norway now use this tool to create, publish and share digital reading lists.

By using Leganto you can:

  • Work with only one version of the reading list, changes will be updated automatically elsewhere.
  • Get direct access to full-text articles and information about the books on the library shelves.
  • Add direct links to articles and digital resources.
  • Automatically format display styles and individual elements in the references.
  • Collaborate on creating the reading lists.
  • Get a better overview of the students' use of the reading lists and communicate with them.
  • Facilitate simple and more orderly communication between all parties involved.
