Semester 2 deadlines announced

22nd October 2018 

29th October 2018

We will still build new lists and review lists beyond these dates, but may not be able to guarantee that new purchases will arrive or scans will be ready in time for the start of semester 2 teaching.

Course organisers, If you would like the Library to provide a Semester 2 Resource List, please send us your annotated list using the online form https://edin.ac/resource-list-request-form by Monday 22nd October.

Alternatively, if you’re working on your Semester 2 Resource List yourself, please publish and use the ‘Send List’ button  to request a review by Monday 29th October. Remember to prioritise items on your list using the ‘Essential’, ‘Recommended’ and ‘Further reading’ tags. To request e-reserve scans, use the ‘Digitisation’ tag and ‘Library discussion’ to provide page numbers or chapter details of pages you’d like scanned.

We’re also running some bookable workshops throughout October. These sessions rarely last the full two hours and are an opportunity to refresh your knowledge of Leganto and ask us any questions you have about Resource Lists and/or Leganto.

Resource Lists: Semester 1 Deadline 9th July

The deadline for sending your reading lists to the Library is fast approaching. Course organisers and tutors, send us your lists using the online form by end of Monday 9th July.

As well as converting your current reading list to an online Resource List using Leganto, we’ll check all current library holdings, process any new or additional purchases, provide e-reserve scans and move items to HUB/Reserve.

The ISG website also has details on how the Library is using Resource Lists to manage the provision of key reading materials.

Building your own resource list?

If you’re building your own lists for 2018/19, remember to use ‘Send List’ to send the list to the Library for review by 23rd July. There is a 10 step guide to using Resource Lists to help you get started.

Resource Lists: troubleshooting

It’s the start of semester and all Semester 1 lists are published – we’re now working on Semester 2 lists. However, we’re hearing that some students are having issues accessing their lists via Learn. While we do some investigating, there are workarounds in place.

If  you’re having problems accessing their Resource Lists, and see an ‘illegal institution’ error message, there’s a few things you can try:

  1. If you’re going through LEARN, don’t use Internet Explorer! Use Chrome or Firefox;
  2. If you’re going through LEARN and using Safari, you may need to change your browser settings to ‘accept cookies’;
  3. If you’re still having problems, you can log in through the homepage (http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk ). You need to make sure and sign in to have full text access to resources (go to ‘Guest’ top right of screen to log in).
  4. If you’re still unable to access Resource Lists, we can check your  Library account is set up correctly – if this is the case, drop us a line (library.learning@ed.ac.uk  ) with your details and we’ll investigate.

There’s a  student guide and further information on the Information Services webpages: http://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/research-teaching-staff/resource-lists

Please keep an eye  on the Resource List blog (http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/resourcelists/  ) and/or follow us on Twitter @ResourceListsEd for regular updates.

Resource List: Permalinks

You can generate a permalink for your Resource List which you can then add to a web page or document.

Don’t copy the link in the browser address bar.

Instead, go to the ‘Reading Lists’ option menu (…) at the top of your list and select ‘Permalink’ from the drop down menu. You have the option to create a permalink to your list here.

Any permalink you use should have “SAML” at the end. Eg

https://eu01.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/leganto/public/44UOE_INST/lists/15088379880002466?auth=SAML 

 

 

Resource Lists- remember to sign in!

If you’re using Resource Lists via the Find lists homepage: http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk and you’re having problems accessing resources on a Resource List, check if you’re logged in.

If you see ‘Guest’ in the top right of the screen you’re not logged in!

Not Logged in, ‘Guest user’

If you’re a ‘Guest’ you can still see the list but you won’t be able to click through for full text access.

Click on ‘Guest’ and use your EASE details to sign in. When you see your name, you can start using Resource Lists and should be able to access all the resources on your list.

Editing a list: How to move and delete citations and sections

This short guide will show you how to edit, move, and delete your citations and/or sections within your list.

How to edit your citations

In this video we are going to show you how to edit your citations in two ways:

  1. By clicking on the menu (the “…” icon on the right of the citation) and choosing the “edit item” option. You can add additional information about the item record in the pop-up.
  2. Clicking on the citation displays the full item record, which you can easily edit to add notes for students or a note for the library.

How to move your citations

Moving your citations around is easily done with just dragging and dropping them.

Useful tip: if you experience problems, refreshing the page may help.

 

 

How to delete your citations

You can delete your item by choosing the “delete item” option from the citation menu (clicking

on the “…” icon on the right of the citation).

Useful tip: If you would like to delete the item from the section, but you might want to use it again some time later, save it to your “My Collection” and you can easily find it again when needed.

How to edit your sections

Click on the menu (the “…” icon on the right of the section’s title), and then choose the “edit section” option.

Don’t forget to hit “Save” after changing something on your list.

How to move your sections

This video will demonstrate how to move your sections within the list.

 

Useful tip: if you are having problems with dragging and dropping the sections, refresh the list, or the whole page.

How to copy sections

You can copy sections within the same list, or you can even copy sections into as many other lists as you wish. The video below will show you how.

How to delete your sections

The way you delete a section is very similar to deleting an item. Click on the menu (“…”) on the right of the section’s title, and then choose the “delete section” option. NB if you delete a section or a list, you can’t recover it, so be careful!

If you have any comments or queries about Resource Lists, please get in touch with Library Learning Services at library.learning@ed.ac.uk

Semester 2 deadlines
24th July is the deadline for Semester 1 courses. We’ll issue new deadlines for Semester two in September- so plenty of time to think about using Leganto for Semester 2 courses.

If you’d like the Library to build your Semester 1 course Resource List and you’ve missed the deadline, we’ll still do our best to have the list ready in time for the start of teaching. Send the annotated reading list, with a coversheet to Library.Learning@ed.ac.uk
