Course Readings (Reserve Lists) in Canvas

In Canvas, students can access course resources with the Course Readings tool (formally known as Leganto). Instructors can add electronic articles, streaming media, digitized content, physical materials, and more into a single reading list so students can access all their course materials in one place. Instructors can also search the library's collection for books, articles and Open Educational Resources, which can then be added to reading lists; library staff can process reserve items efficiently; and students can access all course materials in one place and from any device.
