Organizing a List

Leganto reading lists can be structured by adding sections to organize your resources. Reading lists are commonly organized by:

  • Time frame (week 1, week 2 etc)
  • Thematically (topic 1, topic 2 etc)
  • Resource types (articles, books, videos etc)
  • Importance (required reading, recommended reading etc)

Check out the boxes below to learn more about adding and managing sections to help organize your reading list...

Creating and Managing Sections

To add a new section, click the New Section button in the reading list.

Give your section a title and description (try to use titles/descriptions that will be meaningful for your students)

Adding a new section

As an advanced feature, the date ranges control visibility settings. You can leave this blank or you can input a date range to restrict viewing to that date range only (this is useful if you wish to slowly reveal sections through the semester).

NOTE: You can add as many sections as you like. Follow the same process to add additional sections.

Reordering sections or citations is really easy in Leganto. Just follow these simple steps...

To reorder a section, first click on the Toggle Section View icon. This will collapse the sections so only the titles are displayed.
