Readings for Topic Coordinators
You can export your Reading list in several different ways.
To Export your citations go to Reading list options and under export choose how you would like to export them.
- Sections can be exported separately, rather than exporting the whole list. Exporting to word provides the same referencing style options as when using whole list export. Printing the section will reproduce information in the citations, but without referencing standards.
You can export to the following format; please note, how the citations export is dependent on the format you choose.
- .lgn file
- Ris file
If you choose to export to Word, a variety of referencing styles are available.
- American Medical Association
- American Political Science Association
- American Sociological Association
- Modern Humanities Research Association
- Expanded Reading List Style
My Collection allows you to save citations for later use and review.
Add items to your collection in similar ways to how you would add an item to a Reading list. You can also use the 'Copy to my collection' option against a citation in your Reading list.
When you have made a Private note in a citation this will save and remain on the citation when you copy it to your collection or add it to a Readings list.
Deleting an item from your collection does not remove it from any lists it has been added to.
See Readings as your students will, by going to the Reading list options and selecting View list as a student.
To exit student view mode, click close (X) on the bottom right of the page.
You can add Collaborators to your Reading list, if you have teaching staff who help manage your lists.
In your Reading list, in the right hand column find the option for Collaborators.
Expand then select Manage collaborators to add or edit this list.
You will now have an option to search for Collaborators to add to your list. If you are unable to find the teaching staff you are looking for please email the Learning Access team
The staff member will receive an email notification alerting them that they have been added as a collaborator.
Once added, you can select their level of permissions: Edit or Manage. If you don't see this option the Staff member has been given access due to the link in FLO.
You are able to duplicate an entire Reading list and assign it to a different FLO site/ topic code.
Please note: if you change the list after you have duplicated it the changes will only be for one FLO site. Each list will also need to be sent to the library for copyright checks as this happens per list.
In "Reading list options", select Duplicate list.
This will create a copy of the list, you will see in brackets a number to signify it is a copy
The copied list will still be associated to the same course and you will need to change it's association or remove the association completely.
Under Reading list options select "Course association options" and from the drop down choose what you would like to do.
To change course Association search for the topic code and select it from the drop down list that appears.
To remove all topics and have the list unattached select "Remove associated course". It can be associated with a different topic at a later date. Please note the library will be monitoring "orphan" lists and it may become archived if not used after a certain time.
Add Section links to your FLO site
You can add a (LTI) link directly to a section on your Reading list within your FLO site. Please be aware these may not be supported in the rollover process and you may need to refresh the direct sections links every year. (The link will always link to your list, however, links may then direct to the whole list rather than the section).
Every FLO site will have a link directly to your Reading list, this is a way to add extra links.
To add a link to your FLO site first copy the LTI direct access ID to the section you would like to create the link to.
1a) In your Readings list click on the ... for the section and choose LTI direct access
1b) Copy the link to your clipboard
2a) In FLO add an activity or resource
2b) Choose External tool and click Add
3) Name the link, and from the drop down choose 'eReadings (Leganto)'
4a) Next click Show more... and scroll down to find custom parameters.
4b) Paste the LTI direct access ID into the custom parameters box
5) Save and return to topic - you will now have a link to a direct section. When you follow this link it will open the relevant section leaving other sections collapsed.
