Leganto is a reading list management system for Northeastern University, allowing instructors to develop a reading list within a Canvas course site. It provides the flexibility to break readings into weeks and sections and to add different types of resources to course lists, including e-books, streaming videos, self-uploaded materials, and web content.
The library has been hosting regular webinars and online workshops to assist faculty in setting up and using Leganto. Click here to see upcoming workshops.
