If you require your students to read a book the Library does not have in stock, you can add it to a list on Reading Lists (Leganto) and it will be ordered for you.

How do we know how many copies you will need?

Each item listed on Reading Lists should have a tag assigned to it: this tag decides the importance of the item and allows the Library to apply a pre-determined book/student ratio.

  • Essential - very important to the course; all students will need to use these texts.
  • Recommended - supplementary texts which students are encourages to use.
  • Background - additional texts which are suggested for background subject area reading.

For each Faculty:
