Cite it!

Another way to add resources to your reading list is with the Cite It! option. It's particularly handy for adding external resources such as websites, government documents and blogs.

To use this feature, you need to add the Cite It! button to your Internet browser in the following way:

  • Go to your name in the top-right corner of the Leganto page.
  • Click the drop-down menu, select Leganto Cite It!

A pop-up window will open.

Click and drag the Cite It! button up to your browser.

Check your browser window to ensure that pop-ups are enabled so that the Cite It! button will work.

When you find a website you would like to add to Leganto, click the Cite It! button in your browser.

Edit the item details and choose whether to add to your collection or to a particular reading list.  

Select 'Add' or 'ADD & CLOSE' to close the Cite It! pop-up window.

You will get a message confirming that the resource has been added to your list.

You must be logged in to Leganto on another tab for the Cite It! button to work seamlessly and consistently. If you are not logged in to Leganto, you should receive a log-in prompt.

If you use Cite It! to add ACU-subscribed resources like journal articles or eBooks to your reading list, make sure you include the direct permalink in the Source field so that readings can be accessed off campus. See the instructions for creating direct ezproxy links.
