    Main Features

    Automatically Create First Section When Creating a List in LegantoURM-154449

    December 2021 LegantoNERS NERS Enhancement (ID #7235)
    When creating a new list in Leganto, the user is prompted to choose a template for the list structure. The blank template, which comes out of the box with Leganto, has been renamed "Default", and it now includes one section. The section name will be "Resources" unless otherwise configured. Users will be able to start adding resources to the list immediately, bypassing the need to create the first section.
    The following labels can be customized using Leganto > General > Labels:
    Text Default Label
    Template name Default list.templates.title.custom
    Template description Blank list with one default section list.templates.desc.custom
    Section Resources defaultSection.title
    The tooltip You must have at least one section now only appears if the instructor deletes the section.
    Default template example

    For more information, see Saving a Reading List Structure as Template.

    Quick Cite: Export a Single Citation in a Specific Reference FormatURM-148214

    December 2021 Leganto idea exchange Idea Exchange

    Quick Cite enables users to generate a citation for a single resource, and specify the bibliography style for the citation. The default style is set in Leganto > Features > Bibliographic Styles. If no default style is set, the first style in the Bibliographic Styles table appears. The Quick Cite feature is enabled by default but can be disabled in Leganto > UI > Citation Menu.

    After selecting Copy to clipboard a disclaimer appears: Remember to check citations for accuracy before including them in your work.

    Reply to an Annotation-146055

    December 2021 Leganto

    Leganto now enables you to reply to public annotations.


    Reply option

    The dotted line indicates which reply relates to which comment.


    Reply to a comment

    When a second reply is added, the dotted line extends to indicate multiple replies to the same comment.


    Multiple replies

    When switching focus from an annotation, the comments are collapsed with an indication of the number of replies.


    Collapsed comments

    When deleting an annotation with replies, the replies are also deleted.

    When there are replies to an annotation, the annotation cannot be changed to Private.

    For more information, see Working with Assignments.

    PDFs Open in a New TabURM-155052

    December 2021 Leganto
    PDFs now open in a new tab, leveraging the full screen size. Previously, Leganto supported the option to embed PDFs on the Leganto page, but embedded PDFs are especially problematic when Leganto itself is embedded in the learning management system, limiting the space on the page. The new tab uses a view that condenses the citation information to focus on the reader, giving students and instructors maximum space on the page to view the resource and add annotations (when enabled).
    Previous Display:

    Current Display:

    PDFs_After.pngBoth the brief and full view of the citation display the option to open the resource in a new tab.November_Brief.png

    Brief View


    Full View

    When a new tab is opened, the breadcrumbs are still viewable but they are not links.

    Leganto still includes the option to render PDFs read-only (not downloadable).

    The parameter embed_pdf_by_default was replaced by pdf_use_leganto_viewer (Leganto > Leganto Features) parameter. The default setting is true.

    For more information, see Configuring Whether Instructors can Embed Citations Directly in Leganto.

    Choose Sort Method When Exporting a List

    November 2021 LegantoNERS NERS Enhancement (ID #7396)
    Leganto now enables you to choose a sort method when exporting a list.
    When exporting to Microsoft Word, users now have the option to Sort by: Bibliography style or List order.
    The sorting order by bibliography style is alphabetical, according to the style selected. This option is available for all bibliography styles, except for the Expanded Reading List Style, which is an Ex Libris style.

    When exporting to PDF, or when exporting to Word and selecting the Expanded Reading List Style, users have the option to Sort by: Title or List order

    The default sort method is defined in the citation_export_style_order (Leganto Configuration > General > Settings) parameter.

    Export To Word - Sort by Bibliography style/List order
    Expanded Reading List Style - Sort by Title/List order
    Export To PDF - Sort by Title/List order

    View Student Usage by Academic Year

    Create Read and Respond Assignments on Leganto Course Materials

    October 2021 Leganto

    Instructors can now create Read and Respond assignments on course materials, requiring students to read and annotate PDF files as directed by the instructor. Read and Respond assignments are seamlessly integrated into the course page in the learning management system (LMS), and the easy-to-use Leganto grading dashboard synchronizes the students’ grades with the LMS grade book.

    To start using Read and Respond assignments, you must first configure an LTI 1.3 integration with your LMS and add the assignments selection option. See the Developer Network for details.

    Once configured, instructors can start adding Read and Respond assignments to their course page.


    Instructor View of a Read and Respond Assignment

    Students can access the assignment through the LMS, add annotations to the file, and submit their assignments.

    As students submit their assignments, the grading dashboard updates, showing an overview of the assignment status for each of the students in the course.


    Leganto Grading Dashboard

    Instructors can select START GRADING to begin grading all assignments which have been submitted but not yet graded. Instructors can enter a score for the assignment, and optionally add a comment for the student, then select SAVE & NEXT to move to the next student in the list to be graded.


    Leganto Grading Tool Displays Each Student’s Assignment.

    Select POST SCORES to update the LMS with the students' scores.

    For more information, see Working with Assignments.

    Alma Displays Same Citation Metadata as Leganto

    October 2021 Leganto
    The Alma citation form (Fulfillment > Citations) now displays the same fields as Leganto, as configured for the selected Material Type. The citation fields per material type are configured in the Leganto Citation Field Mapping (Configuration > Leganto > UI) for the Type. Additionally, it is now possible to configure which fields will be mandatory for each citation material type.

    Citation Metadata

    Updated Tagging Workflow

    October 2021 Leganto

    Previously, when adding or removing tags from a citation, a user selected the Add tag option, then selected or removed the tags, then selected SAVE. Now, users can select Add Tag and select the relevant tags, which are saved automatically. To remove tags, one only needs to select the X next to the tag. This updated tagging workflow is in line with other systems which support tagging, resulting in less confusion and fewer errors.


    Previous Tagging Workflow


    Updated Tagging Workflow

    Leganto Student Usage Includes Guest Usage

    October 2021 Analytics SF: 00919191 00949528
    Leganto Analytics now includes guest usage, including historical guest usage. By default, any report your institution created or creates in the future includes guest usage. To filter reports to display just student usage, use the User Role field (Leganto Student Usage > Student Usage) and filter for student. The reports that appear in the List Analysis in Leganto do not include guest usage.

    Social Reading: Public Annotations on Course Materials

    August 2021 Leganto

    Students and instructors can now share their annotations with each other. When allow_citation_public_annotation (Configuration > Leganto > Features > Leganto Features) is set to true (default), a toggle appears on citations with embedded PDFs, giving instructors the option to enable or disable Public Annotations on a per PDF/Citation basis.

    If allow_citation_public_annotation is set to false, the Public/Private toggle is hidden on the PDF header.


    Public Annotations Enabled

    If Public Annotations is enabled on the PDF header, the user can select whether their annotation should be public or private. The default is Private, in which case the annotation is only visible to the user who added the annotation.


    Annotations - Private

    If an annotation is set to Public, the name of the person who wrote the comment, and the date and time of the comment are visible in the annotation menu. Public comments are searchable in the annotations menu. Each student's name appears in a different color above their comment, and instructor comments appear with an instructor icon next to their name. Instructors can delete public annotations or change them to Private.


    Public Annotations

    Users can also change their own comments from Public to Private, or from Private to Public.public_annotations_settings.png

    Annotation Settings - Set as Private

    Additionally, Instructors can use the Edit Multiple Items tool in Leganto to enable or disable public annotations.


    Edit multiple items

    Annotations are stored as a separate layer on the file, visible only in Leganto and within the context of the reading list. They will not be added to printed or downloaded versions of the file, and private/public annotations are only copied when selecting Move item to the same list. 

    Below are the rules for when private/public annotations are not copied:

    • Duplicating a list
    • Selecting Copy to my collection
    • Selecting rollover
    • Copying a section/citation to another list
    • Copying a section/citation to the current list
    • Selecting Move item to a different list

    For more information, see Creating Private Annotations.

    Easily Link to a Section or Citation from the LMS

    August 2021 Leganto
    By default, when creating an LTI link in the Learning Management System (LMS), the link points to the list associated with the course. Link Selection enables you to specify what item your link should point to (either to a list, a section, or a citation). You must be using LTI 1.3 to take advantage of this feature. For more information, see Link Selection.
    Link Selection in the LMS

    Set Visibility for Useful Links

    July 2021 Leganto
    Leganto now provides the option to select which users can view each of your useful links by selecting All, Instructor, or Student from the Visibility dropdown list (Configuration > Leganto > Features > Links).

    Add/Remove Owner using Reading List Bulk Update

    July 2021 Leganto URM-144524
    You can now add or remove a specific reading list owner or collaborator using the Reading List Bulk Update job (Admin > Run a Job). The job parameters now include new options to:
    • Add owner — specify a specific owner, and choose if they are an owner or a collaborator
    • Remove owner  — remove all owners or specify an owner to remove


    Add/Remove owner

    Auto-set Lists to Complete

    July 2021 Leganto SF: 00685375
    Previously, if all citations on a reading list were automatically set to complete, the list was still sent to the library with a Ready for Processing status. Now, the library can configure reading lists to automatically be set to Complete when they are sent to the library if all of the citations on the reading list are complete.
    When an instructor selects Library Review or Publish on a reading list and all citation statuses are set to Complete, the list status updates according to the status set in reading_list_citations_complete. If the parameter reading_list_citations_complete (Configuration > Leganto > List Management > Course Reserves Automatic Statuses) was previously empty, the value is now set to Complete. Other values remain unchanged. For more information, see Sending a Reading List to the Library for Fulfillment.
    Reading list citation parameter
    The parameter value will only be set to Complete if it was previously set to Complete, or if it was not set. If the parameter was set to another value, such as ReadyForProcessing, the value remains unchanged.

    Bolk Copyright Service: Automated Status Updates

    July 2021 Leganto
    For Norwegian customers, Bolk synchronize was added as a daily job in Admin > Monitor Jobs. This job can be enabled to check Bolk's status and update the status in Leganto accordingly. The default setting for this job is disabled. For more information, see Integrating with Bolk.
    Bolk synchronize

    New File Upload Form

    June 2021 Leganto
    The process of uploading a file to a citation is now more intuitive and user-friendly. To streamline the process of creating a new citation that is based on a file, the File option directs the user to first load the file. In many cases, Leganto extracts the metadata from the files and saves manual entry of the citation details. Also see Adding a Citation Manually.
    The File option does not display if the institution has eliminated the option to upload files by limiting the file size to zero. For more information, see Configuring File Uploads
    To create a citation by uploading a file:

    Select File.

    Select File from Add Item Menu

    Browse or drag and drop a file to upload.

    Upload a File form


    Upload a File progress bar

    If your institution has configured File Upload Copyright Options, instructors are prompted to select from the configured options.


    The uploaded file displays the copyright clearance details.


    Upload a File

    When editing an item with a file, you can toggle to view the copyright declaration.

    Selecting View copyright declaration displays the copyright declaration.


    Edit Item

    To add a file to an existing citation, select the option to drag or upload a file at the top of the Edit item screen.

    The left pane was replaced with a hamburger icon, which can be expanded to view the options. Additionally, a Back icon was added to return to the previous page.
    Hamburger icon and Back icon.

    List Status Automatically Updates when Citation Status Updates

    June 2021 Leganto NERS NERS Enhancement (ID #6444)
    When a previously completed list has a citation status change due to one of the following parameters set in Configuration > Leganto > List Management > Course Reserves Automatic Statuses:
    • revert_citation_status_by_removing_tags
    • revert_citation_status_by_adding_tags
    • revert_completed_citation_status_by_metadata_change — the following metadata triggers a change in status:
      • Additional Person Name
      • Author
      • Book Chapter
      • Chapter Author
      • Chapter Title
      • Chapter Number
      • DOI

    The List status changes if revert_list_status_to is set. For example, you can choose to have the list status change to Ready for Processing if the citation status changes when the instructor adds a tag.

    Integration with LTI 1.3

    June 2021 Leganto URM-148681
    Institutions can now integrate with the Learning Management System via LTI 1.3. This newer LTI protocol enables new features, compared to the LTI 1.1 protocol that was used previously. LTI 1.1 continues to be supported and all integrations with the LMS using LTI 1.1 will continue to work as they have up to now; however, we recommend upgrading to LTI 1.3 to benefit from the new features available, as well as new features which will be developed moving forward. For more information, see LTI 1.3.

    LTI 1.3 Import Citations in Canvas

    June 2021 Leganto URM-150153
    Canvas LMS supports the ability to add a new button to the LMS text editor. Using this button in Canvas, you can now embed citations from your Leganto lists directly into the Canvas editor. For more information, see Editor Button.
    This feature is available only to Canvas users using LTI 1.3.
    Import Citations
    Once the Canvas user selects Import Citations, the resource list associated with the course is displayed and the user can select one or more citations to embed in the Canvas page. The user can also select the desired bibliographic style of the citations' display.

    Add Item Menu

    May 2021 Leganto URM-144418
    The new Add Items menu highlights the multiple options for adding citations, such as uploading a file and adding a citation from a reference manager, if configured. The Add Items menu will only display options that have been enabled for your institution. The available options are:
    • Library Search - Search and add resources from your discovery system.
    • Blank Form - Manually enter metadata to create a citation.

    The sandbox release label is Manual Form, but the production release label is Blank Form. If you need to change it in your sandbox (for example, to create screenshots) you can change the label: addItem.tabs.manualForm (Configuration > Leganto > General > Labels).

    • File - Select a file from your computer to upload. The drop-down list includes a section at the top of the list for the most commonly used file types. This option is hidden if the max_file_size_allowed_faculty_MB parameter is set to 0. For more information, see Configuring Whether Instructors Can Upload Files that Contain Reading Lists.
    • Collection - Add a resource from your Leganto collection.
    • RefWorks - Add a resource from your RefWorks account. This option is hidden if RefWorks is not enabled. To enable RefWorks, the refworks_group_code parameter (Configuration menu > General > External Integrations) must contain a value and the user must have a username and password in their settings.
    • Mendeley - Add a resource from your Mendeley account. The option is hidden if Mendeley is not enabled. To enable Mendeley, the mendeley_client_id and mendeley_secret parameters (Leganto Configurations > General > External Integrations) must contain a value.
    • Zotero - Add a resource from your Zotero account. This option is hidden if Zotero is disabled. To enable Zotero, the Zotero User ID and Zotero API key (in User Settings in the Leganto interface) must contain a value.

    New Bolk Copyright Request API

    May 2021 LegantoURM-146580

    Leganto integrates with Bolk to support Norwegian copyright requests, and a new API is available for Bolk imports. There are three possible return responses, Using HE license, Using mandate, and Rights clearance required. A new status field on the citation, Bolk Status, reflects the status of the Bolk request as follows:
    • Using HE license - Bolk Status is Approved.
    • Using mandate - Bolk Status is Approved, with the Price per page appended to the field.
    • Rights Clearance Required - Copyright Status is Rejected with the Bolk rejection message immediately following. Bolk Status is Rejected and the message received from Bolk will be displayed to the user as is. 
    The API will include additional functionality in a coming release.

    Leganto Course Copyrights

    May 2021 Leganto URM-146348
    The instructor can now associate or remove course associations from a list in Leganto even if there are approved copyright requests. An overnight job will run to recalculate the copyright on any lists in which the course association was changed. To enable this feature, the associate_course_approved_copyright parameter must be set to true (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Copyright Management > Leganto Copyright Settings). The parameter defaults to false. See Configuring Leganto Copyright-Related Procedures.

    Annotating PDFs

    March 2021 Leganto URM-144259
    Users can now highlight important text and add annotations in the Leganto PDF viewer, enabling students and instructors to take notes and add comments directly within their course materials. All annotations are private and visible only to the individual, and annotations are not stored on the original file, but rather, as a separate layer. This new development is available for any embedded PDF file.

    Change Completed Citations' Status Upon Metadata Change

    January 2021 Leganto NERS NERS Enhancement (ID #6444) URM-136747
    You can now configure Leganto to change the status of a completed citation when the citation metadata is edited by an instructor in Leganto. To enable this feature set the customer parameter, revert_completed_citation_status_by_metadata_change, (Leganto > List Management > Course Reserves Automatic Statuses),  to the desired status. Optional statuses can be BeingPrepared, Complete, Declined, Inactive, InProcess, ReadyForProcessing, or a code from the Additional Reading List Citation Status table. The parameter is blank and disabled by default.

    Allow Multiple RolloversURM-154445

    December 2021 Fulfillment - Course ReservesNERS NERS Enhancement (ID #7334)

    Alma now enables the institution to run the rollover job multiple times without fear of unintentionally duplicating reading lists that have already been rolled over. The Course Loader integration profile (Configuration Menu > General > External Systems > Integration Profiles) now includes an On rollover copy only lists created before field. By default, the calendar field is empty. Institutions that run the rollover job more than once per term can enter the date of the previous rollover to ensure that reading lists that were previously rolled over will not be rolled over again. 


    Course Loader - Allow Multiple Rollovers

    The job checks if the reading list associated with the COURSE_CODE was created before the date defined in the field. If the reading list was created prior to the defined date, the reading list associated with the OLD_COURSE_CODE is rolled over to the course defined in COURSE_CODE. Otherwise, the reading list is not rolled over.

    For more information, see Configuring Course Loading.

    November 2021 Fulfillment - Course Reserves SF: 00939891
    Previously, the journal/article Issue field (Fulfillment > Course Reserves > Citations > Edit) only supported numbers. Leganto now also supports alpha characters for the journal/article Issue field.
    The field is not case sensitive, but the characters need to match exactly for the copyright engine to identify a match against previous records. For example:
    • March-April is the same as March-april
    • March April is not the same as March-April
    • March is not the same as Mar 
    Journal/Article Issue

    July 2021 Fulfillment - Course Reserves URM-107170
    You can now run the Course Loader (Configuration > General > External Systems > Integration Profiles) in Report Mode by selecting Run in Report Mode from the Actions tab. The report mode creates a report as if the Course Loader had run, detailing the records that would have been processed and a list of anticipated issues, warnings, or errors. This report enables the library to clean up the file as needed before running the job, to ensure the Course Loader runs successfully.

    • book chapter, article, and electronic article cannot be updated in bulk as they require an additional title 
    • citations associated with a copyright request or license type-CLA cannot be updated in bulk

    For Norwegian customers, Leganto now supports the ability to request Extended Right Clearance from Bolk. When an Extended Right Clearance is required, the Copyright Status updates to Declined and the Bolk Status updates to Rejected.
    Extend Right Clearance status
    Use the Extend Right Clearance action to submit your request to Bolk. The Copyright Status updates to Waiting for Approval and the Bolk Status updates to Ordered.
    Bolk status
    Use the Update Bolk Status action from the citation menu to track your Bolk status. Currently, tracking your status is a manual process, but this will be replaced in the next release with an automatic daily job to update the status.
    Update Bolk Status

    When the Bolk status changes to Approved, the user sees a price per page and required fee in order to make the material available to students. The Copyright Status at this stage maintains the status of Waiting for Approval.

    Two new actions display in the citation menu:

    • Accept Bolk Right Clearance — you agree to the terms of use. The material will be available for students. The Copyright Status updates to Approved.
    • Reject Bolk Right Clearance — you do not agree to terms of use. The Copyright Status updates to Declined and the material will not be available for students. You can then update the Bolk request.


    Bolk Right Clearance
    In order to better follow Bolk Right Clearance requests, two new alerts were added to the citation:
    • Bolk Right Clearance Approved
    • Bolk Right Clearance Rejected

    These alerts were also added to the user task list:

    User tasks
    You now have the option to update excerpt requests, respond to limitations on additional requests, and lock curriculums. See Integrating with Bolk for more information.
    After a request is submitted, you now have the option to update a Bolk request as long as the course is not locked.
    Update Bolk Request
    When selecting Update Bolk Request, a dialog box displays to enter the required page range.
    Bolk request
    Selecting this action opens a window to enter your required page range. The default page ranges are pre-populated according to the page ranges required by the instructor.

    When a second request is submitted containing the same ISBN as a previous request, the initial request is resubmitted to Bolk as well. Upon submitting a second request, a dialog box displays informing you that an approved request already exists:


    Confirmation Message

    Upon selecting Confirm, you are prompted to enter the pages you are requesting and reconfirm that all requests related to this ISBN are resubmitted.

    Upon selecting Lock Bolk request from a course, Leganto checks whether there are any outstanding requests still awaiting processing. If there are any outstanding requests, the following message is displayed:


    Locked message

    You can now add or remove courses from reading lists with citations that have an approved copyright. The recalculation will be done overnight.
    The process of adding or removing courses from reading lists can be done individually or in bulk from the Reading Lists Task List. (See Adding and Removing Courses from a Reading List). When doing so, if a copyright on the list is already approved, it will be recalculated.
    • You cannot remove an association in bulk if a copyright on the list is approved.
    • To remove a course from the list, there must be another course already attached to the list.
    An overnight job will run to recalculate the copyright on any lists in which the course association was changed during that day. The job report can be seen via the scheduled job.
    If a copyright's start date is in the past when the recalculation is done, the Date Available To of the existing copyright will be changed to the date of the course association, and a new copyright request created. If the end date on the request has already been reached, no additional action is taken. If the start date has not yet arrived, the date of the course is added to the copyright. If there are two or more courses, the earliest start date and the latest end date of all the courses will be used.
    If the recalculation causes the copyright status to change to Not Approved, the citation status will change to Ready for Processing. If the copyright is approved, the citation status is taken from the citation_copyright_approved parameter.
    If the copyright status was previously approved and it changes to Not Approved, an Approved copyright changed alert is added to the citation.
    Copyright alert.png
    Copyright Alert

    This does not apply to lists with a License Type of Bolk, CLA, or CCC.

    Option to Attach Files to Citations Automatically as Part of the Digitization Workflow

    March 2021 Fulfillment - Course Reserves URM-130011
    Alma will now attempt to automatically add the file to the citation at the completion of the digitization workflow, in addition to the existing notification email that is sent to the library staff that manages the list.
    The handling of the file(s) is as follows:

    If the citation has no file and only one file was digitized:

    • The digitized file is added to the citation associated with the request.
    • The existing email is sent with a notification that the digitized file was added to the citation.

    If citation has no file and multiple files were digitized:

    • The digitized files are not attached to the citation.
    • The existing email is sent with a notification that the digitized files were not added to the citation because the digitization request contains multiple files.

    If citation has already a file:

    • The digitized file is not attached to the citation.
    • The existing email is sent with a notification that the digitized file was not added to the citation because the citation has an existing file.

    If file could not be uploaded (in instances such as a communications error):

    • An email is sent with a notification that the file was not added to the citation due to a general error.

    The citations can be tracked using the following facets:

    • Citation Digitization Request Completed
    • Citation has a new file
    Notification Item Letter.png
    Notification Item Letter
    The Ful Digitization Notification Item Letter contains the following new fields:


    The digitized file was not uploaded because another file is already attached to the citation.


    The digitized file was uploaded to the citation.


    Because the digitization request contains multiple files, they could not be automatically uploaded to the citation.


    Due to a general error, the file could not be uploaded to the citation.

    For more information about the letter, see Configuring Alma Letters.

      Bolk request
      Bolk requests are not available in the following scenarios, and a message appears in the Requests section explaining why Create Bolk request is not available:
      • When there is no course — A Bolk request cannot be created because the list has not been associated with a course.
      • When there are multiple courses — A Bolk request cannot be created because the list is associated with more than one course.
      • When there is no ISBN — A Bolk request cannot be created because the citation doesn’t have an ISBN. Please edit the citation and add an ISBN in the ISBN field.
      • When there is no feide_id for the user — A Bolk request cannot be created because there is no Feide ID registered in Bolk for your user. Please contact your administrator.
      • When the course is locked — A Bolk request cannot be created because the course is locked in Bolk.
      Bolk request not available

      Upon selecting Create Bolk request form displays. If specified in the citation, the fields auto-populate with the page range from the citation.

      Pages From/To are mandatory fields.

      If a request is rejected, an Extend Rights Clearance button appears with the price per page information. When selected, the request is submitted to Bolk for processing.

      Extend Rights Clearance

      When approved by Bolk, instructors can:

      • Accept Rights Clearance
      • Reject Rights Clearance


      Bolk request approved

      If the instructor approves the extend rights clearance conditions, the file will be available to students. If the instructor rejects the extend rights clearance conditions, the file will not be available for students.

      If a request already exists for an ISBN, the following message appears:

      An approved Bolk copyright already exists for this publication in this course. On confirm, all existing requests will be submitted to Bolk for recalculation.


      Instructors receive notifications when Bolk Right Clearance Approved/Bolk Right Clearance Rejected are enabled in Leganto > Features > Notifications – Instructor (default disabled).
