After successfully migrating to a new library services platform in fall 2017, the Ithaca College Library collaborated with IT to implement a course reading list tool.  

In collaboration with the IT department, Ex Libris Leganto was made available in the college’s course management system (Sakai). Leganto allows the creation of reading lists for faculty, unifies the provisioning of resources by library staff, and gives students access to course materials in multiple formats.

“An added benefit is that Leganto has made library resources more discoverable as faculty are creating their course reading lists,” says Access Services Manager Ben Hogben. As a result, library staff anticipates the college’s existing collections will be used more frequently for instruction.
