Introduction to Leganto

Leganto is Cardiff Met’s reading list management system. It provides an efficient and easy way to compile and publish reading lists for student cohorts. Fully integrated with MetSearch and Moodle, it provides students with easy access to all course materials through a single interface.

Leganto will allow the creation of a reading list with a variety of materials: books & eBooks, online or digitised book chapters, scholarly articles, videos, images, podcasts and much more to create a flexible, diverse and interactive reading list.

  • Analytics and reports are available to gain insight into usage of materials and adjust course content accordingly.
  • Allows you to provide digitised content in a way that meets the Copyright Licensing Agency's legal requirements.
