First: How to get from D2L to the Reading List Tool
Second: Create a List
Please select "Create a new reading list from scratch" instead of "Upload a document containing an existing reading list". This will make sure that you will be able to use all the features in the Reading List Tool.
Third: Add Sections to a List
Fourth: Add Readings to a Section
Use the Leganto Search feature to find readings already in the library. This is the best way to add readings when you already know the title and author:
Use the Cite It! Widget to add citations from websites.
Use the Upload feature for documents you already own. This is useful if you have PowerPoint slides or other documents you have your students read.
Fifth: Publish Reading List
When you're finished with a list, the library can review it and ensure all links are working properly:
When the librarian has finished reviewing a reading list, Publish it! This ensures the reading list is visible to students.
Once published, you can always add new resources without having to publish it again. Once the library reviewed copyright, the resource will be automatically published in your reading list.
To share the reading list with your students, you can create a Permalink you can click on the ellipsis button next to your reading list and then select Permalink.
