New Course Reserves System (Leganto)

The library is transitioning to a new Reserves System that is integrated into our new Library System.  Leganto works directly with Blackboard to display course reserves for students.  This new system also allows Faculty to create, review and update their reading list for classes directly.  If you are interested in working with this new system, please review the information below and contact Course Reserves.
