Leganto - Course Reserves

A new Library Course Reserves system

Beginning Summer 2022, the Dartmouth Library has adopted a tool called Leganto to provide a better submission process and a more seamless experience with physical and electronic course reserves.

The tool, labeled Library Reserves/Guides in Canvas, allows faculty to build lists of content for a class. Requested materials may include those the library owns or subscribes to as well as content from other internet sources.
A list can be saved, re-used, edited, and shared to reduce the time associated with requesting course reserves.

Media requests will continue to be submitted on the form found of the Jones Media Center webpage.

Library Course Reserves

Library Reserves lists are system-generated within all Canvas courses under the heading Library Reserves/Guides. Faculty add content to these lists if they have reserve readings for the course.

Subject Research Guides are linked to the list even if there are no course readings or physical reserves for students. 

Enrolled students have access to Library Reserves/Guides when the Canvas course is published.

Physical Reserves: Books or media that faculty place on reserve for the semester and which circulate for a shortened-loan period, 2-hour, 4-hour or 24 hour loans. Physical reserves are located at a Circulation desk at either Baker-Berry, Dana, Feldberg or Matthews-Fuller Library.

Electronic Reserves: E-books, book chapters (PDFs) or articles (URLs) that are requested by faculty are made available via the Library Reserves/Guides page. These are available to the students enrolled in the course.

Streaming media: For video media requests, use the form on the Jones Media Center's webpage. Request audio materials using the Library Reserves/Guides interface. Completed audio and video requests are posted to the Panopto tab available in the Canvas course page.
