NOTE: The Library's Resource List Manager (Leganto) will be retired after the Fall 2023 Semester

Instructors can set up a Resource List for their course in Blackboard using the Library's Resource List Manager (also known as Leganto).  This can include any course materials additional to the textbook, including websites, articles, pdf files, YouTube videos--anything you have your students read or interact with during your course.

Benefits of setting up a Resource List in Blackboard

2) Easier for students to find things!
3) Makes it easy to add materials from around the web with just one click!
4) Add library content using the library search!
5) Get help from library staff!
