What is Leganto

Reserves are course materials that University Instructors make available for their students to use. Leganto is our new course e-reserve service that makes it easy to create, access, and manage course resource lists.  Instructors can build, maintain, and share resource lists of all material types, and library staff can provide resources efficiently.

Students and faculty have access to course materials 24/7 through Brightspace.
