Leganto -- Course Readings: Introduction

Instructions for faculty and staff for adding and managing Leganto Course Reserves in Canvas

Leganto Introduction

Mines' Leganto--Course Readings in Canvas is designed to help instructors incorporate library materials in their Canvas courses.  Instructors can use the tool to build reading lists that include books and articles owned by the library, videos, web resources, and more.


  • Instructors search the library catalog and link directly to resources; no need to deal with off-campus access or link maintenance
  • Course materials can be saved and reused in other courses or future semesters
  • Course materials lists are added to Canvas course navigation so that students have easy access
  • Embedded analytics can provide data on students' use of the materials
