Course Reserves & Leganto: Leganto / E-Reserves

Leganto is the platform that Alumni Medical Library uses to provide course reserves to BU students, faculty and staff.


Perks of using Leganto:

  • Create Reading Lists of books, articles, videos, websites, and more for students to easily access.
  • Connects with BU Libraries Catalog and other library resources for quick and flexible access.
  • Integrates Reading Lists directly into Blackboard.

We're here to help!

We can help instructors migrate course readings and external links from their syllabus into Leganto. Send us your syllabus at least six weeks prior to the first day of class to allow us enough time to process the request and prepare a list.

Your request must include:

  • the name of the course
  • the course number
  • a reading list or syllabus
    • please include title, author, year of publication or edition, issue number for journal article, and page number for journal article/book chapter
