ExLibris have been busy building new features – and fixing some issues – in Leganto. Here are the edited highlights from the November release:
1. New! Students can add their own tags to citations – these tags are visible only to the student. Students can filter lists using their own tags or the tags added by instructors.
This is a student’s view of a citation with two extra tags added:
2. Fixed! When you access a list via Learn, you’ll be prompted to open Resource Lists in a new tab if your browser blocks pop ups. No more error messages!
3. New! Students and course organisers can see recent changes from within a resource list. Now you can select ‘Display recent list changes’ from the reading list options menu:
Then you’ll see a list of changes specific to that list:
4. New! Course dates will display both start and end dates.
- For a course running in single year, the year appears as before. For example: 2017
- For a course that spans one year to the next (i.e. one academic year), the years appear as: 2017/18
- For a course that spans over more than two years, the years appear as: 2017-19
5. Fixed! Cite it! has been fixed to work with ScienceDirect. So, when you use Cite it! to add articles from Science Direct, the information will show up correctly on your list.
If you have any questions about the new features or resource lists in general, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. Although the semester 2 deadline has officially passed, please do still send your lists in by Friday 1st December and we’ll do our best to build them (and get books ordered and chapters scanned) before the start of term.
