Ask the Library to roll over a reading list

If needed, attach a list of new or altered citations using the template below. Please do not attach unit outlines.

If you prefer to perform the roll over yourself, follow the instructions in this guide.

Roll over an existing Leganto Reading List

You can roll over an existing Reading List for use in other Units. If you were not a collaborator on the list to be rolled over, you will need to email for assistance.

To roll over a reading list

  1. Start from the unit in Canvas.
  2. Click on the Reading List link in the Canvas Menu. This will open the Leganto welcome page.
  3. On the welcome page in Leganto, you should see details of your specific unit under "You are about to create a reading list for the following course:.". If the details are correct, select the roll over option further down the page.

If you don't see the necessary correct information about your unit, or the roll over button does not appear on the page, email the Library at

  1. Locate and select the existing reading list you want to roll over to your unit. If searching by unit code, include an underscore between code elements (for example: EXSC_296).

If a Reading List for the unit does not display, it may mean that you don't have collaborator access to the list. Contact us for assistance or email

  1. A 'Roll over from an existing course' pop up window will display once you have selected the list.
  2. Enter a name for the new Reading List, starting with the unit code (for example MKTG601 Brand Marketing 2022 Semester 1 Online).
  3. Remove old course information and the words 'Rolled Over' from the title.
  4. Click 'Roll Over'.
  5. Update the readings on the rolled over list as required and add any necessary notes or tags.
  6. Send your list to the library for review and processing.
  7. Publish the list so it can be viewed by your students.
