Resource Lists update – launching early June

What have we been doing?

We’re on track to go live with Leganto, our new resource lists system, week beginning 5th June. We’ve started checking the lists that we’ve moved over from the previous system and everything’s looking good so far.

Over the last few months we’ve been busy:

  • Preparing the current resource lists data for migration
  • Learning about all the features of the new system
  • Creating new user guides and training materials
  • Figuring out how the Library teams will work together to process resource lists as efficiently as possible
  • Asking the ExLibris support team lots and lots of questions…

What happens next?

During w/b 5th, we’ll send you details on how you can view and edit existing lists and start creating new lists to send to the Library for processing.

Over the summer, we’ll have four Resource Lists Assistants joining us in the Library Learning Services team. As well as creating and reviewing new lists, they’ll be checking all of the lists that we moved over from the previous reading list system, to make sure everything has migrated correctly.

Once all the training materials are complete, we’ll be offering workshops and training sessions for Course Organisers. Details of bookable sessions will be circulated shortly. We’re also happy to come to you and hold one-to-one sessions; please get in touch at to arrange a visit.

We’ll also be asking Course Organisers to send us their Semester 1 resource lists by 10th July or create their own and send for review by 24th July.

Please keep an eye on the Resource Lists blog for updates.
