Troubleshooting and Frequently asked questions

Leganto works best in Firefox and Chrome (not IE, Microsoft Edge or Safari)

The reading list must be associated with the banner code of the exact unit in LEO (where you have added the Leganto link).   It is important that you choose the correct Unit Code, Section code (e.g. 2C for Brisbane attendance) and teaching period (e.g. 201930 for First Semester 2019) when associating a reading list with a Unit.  Refer to the Associate your reading list page for more information on this Banner codes for units.

If you have selected the correct unit association, the CRN No.  (showing in the reading list title in Leganto) will match with the Unit ID number that displays in the Unit Settings in LEO.

You also need to make sure the list has been published.

You cannot search for individual book chapters from print books using the Search function.  To add book chapters to your reading list and request a scan to be uploaded by the Library:

  1. Search for the book title and add to your reading list (don’t search by chapter title)
  2. Edit the citation to turn it into a book chapter.  Include the chapter title and page numbers so the Library knows exactly what needs to be scanned
  3. Add a digitise tag  
  4. Send the list to the Library for processing.

This process is also outlined in the following video: Digitising book chapters.

Contact your Senior Librarian about sourcing (for e.g. Your librarian may be able to purchase an ebook, source a scan via interlibrary loan, or organise a scan of a lecturer's copy)

You need to be logged in to Leganto on another tab for the Cite it! widget to work seamlessly and consistently. If you are not logged in you should receive a log in prompt. You also need to ensure that 3rd party cookies are also enabled in Firefox and Chrome.

The sooner you can send a list (or a section) to the library for processing the better! 4 weeks before the start of semester is recommended.

Yes. Create additional reading lists on the My Lists page in Leganto.  Then link to the subsequent reading list on LEO using the link to your reading list instructions. Make sure both reading list are associated with the correct LEO unit.

Leganto allows you to export a reading list to a leganto .lgn file. You can import your reading list from this file if you accidentally delete your list.

Contact your Senior Librarian to discuss.
