Readings Service

From Semester 1 2021, all reading lists will run on a new platform, called Leganto, and this has replaced the Talis Aspire system.

The Leganto tool is an open self-service model and available for teaching staff to add and modify citations as required. Once teaching staff get to use Leganto, you may find it faster and easier to create your list of readings directly in Leganto.

For Teaching staff

How to access

Access reading lists at Readings.monash.edu or via the Library tile on My.Monash.

Teaching staff can connect directly to the Leganto tool via the Library tile in my.Monash to view reading lists, and enhance, modify, and create lists relating to their courses in real-time, whenever it is convenient to do so.

Add resources 

Check the library catalogue directly from Leganto to ‘drop and drag’ citations directly into your reading list.

‘Digital/online first’ remains the preferred approach to deliver library collections (where available) as it enables anytime, anywhere access to students, and offers more equitable access than print options.

Tag resources

Tag resources to guide students to required or recommended readings.

Required titles only available in print will be assigned ‘short loan’ status, to facilitate access to limited print copies.

Readings Service support

Contact the Readings Service team lib-readings@monash.edu who will respond to your query between 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.

The library can assist teaching staff with creation of up to 50 citations for each course reading list received prior to 5 July.  The Leganto tool is open and available for teaching staff to add and modify citations as required.   Once you get to use Leganto, you may find it faster and easier to create your list of readings directly in Leganto.
