Adding and moving sections

Information is easily movable in Leganto lists.

If sections of your list are in the wrong order, ensure that the section you want to use is collapsed and only displaying the section title (if you aren’t sure if your list is collapsed, the small arrow next to the section title will be pointing to the right). Please note that if your section has no items populating it, it can’t be moved until it has some items in the section.

Hover your mouse cursor over the section you wish to move, and you will see a blue column appear to the right of the section line. Grab the blue column by clicking, holding, and dragging with your mouse and drop it when it is in the position you wish. Alternatively, there are up and down buttons on the blue column which can be clicked to move the section a line at a time to the desired position. You can change the order of your sections at any point, but there is not an undo function to automatically put things back as they were before any changes. 

To change which section of your list a resource is located, find the resource in your reading list. Remember, if you have multiple sections on your list, you will need to click the section titles to see the list of items in the section. Once you have found the item you wish to move, select the ellipses button on the right (…) in line with the item title.

Select “Move citation” from the drop-down menu that appears. From here you have the option to move the item to another reading list or another section of your list as required. You can change the locations of the items in your reading list at any point, but there is not an undo function to automatically put things back as they were before any changes. If you move items within your reading list, you can find the item and move it again using this method. If you move the item to a different reading list by mistake, you will need to find the item in that list in order to remove it.  

Known issues with migrated content

During spot checking of lists following migration we have identified a few issues with some types of content.  This  means you may need to make a few amendments to your list to ensure as many live content links are available to students as possible.  

These issues are outlined below with guidance on how to address them. 

 Duplication of items within your list

Where there were separate links to print and electronic content in Keylinks these are now included under a single entry for an item because of how Leganto can identify content within our Library Catalogue.

Check that  both the print and online links are working and then delete one of the duplicate items in your list. 

Book chapters not linking

Where Keylinks lists included book chapters,  but these were labelled as books rather than book chapters these will not link correctly when the lists were migrated.  The thumbnail of the book cover should be shown correctly, but the chapter title will show as if it was the title of the book.

You have two options for adding books chapters:

  1. Use the Library Search  and add the whole book to your list and add a Pubic Note to direct students to the specific chapter you want them to read
  2. Use the Library Search and use the option to search Everything unchecking the box 'Include records without full-text access'. In the list of results choose the Book Chapters option to filter the list.  Select the chapter you need and add tnis to the appropriate section of your list in the normal way.

Recommenced journal titles not linking

Where a Keylinks list included just the name of a recommended journal (rather than a specific issue or article) there will not be a link to this. You can add the Journal again using Library Search and Leganto will then add a link to this so that students can go to the appropriate site to access eJournals, or see information on where print journals are held.

Note: for some eJournals we may have access through several suppliers who offer different years of access so take care when selecting the one to add. For some you may need to add both suppliers if the years covered don't overlap.
