A toolkit for academic and professional services staff.

About this guide

Leganto is the reading list system used at the Lancaster University.  This guide provides training and support materials to help academic and professional services staff create Resource Lists.  The guide also aims to assist academic and professional services staff to enhance their Resource Lists in relation to a range of principles, including structureaccessibility and diversity, as well as developing student engagement with resources.

The guide includes links to resources demonstrating practice and guiding principles observed in other institutions, with practical issues to consider when developing your Resource Lists.
