Library upgrade update - upcoming training

16 Sep 2022

The new ANU Library management system went live on 2 August 2022. 

This upgraded system offers huge benefits to both library users and staff. It delivers more streamlined, user-centric services, and creates better access to library collections. 

Training sessions 

Make the most of our vast collection of print and digital resources!

Attend a training session to learn how to effectively discover materials using our new search and discovery platform.

An introductory session is being run at 11am on Tuesday 20 September, and an advanced session will follow at 11am on Wednesday 28 September.

Helpful how-to guide launched 

A new guide is available that will provide everything you need to know when using the new search and discovery platform.

Find out how to sign in, manage loans, search our collections, place requests, export records, and more.

Requesting resources 

There is now one single place to request items. This replaces multiple different systems, providing a more streamlined service for library users.

Read this guide for step-by-step instructions on requesting items from other libraries.

Reading lists 

One exciting feature of this new system is Leganto Reading Listswhich allows academics to build and manage course reading lists for students with one simple, interactive system.

We are currently piloting Leganto with a number of ANU academics. It is scheduled to launch in time for Semester 1, 2023.

For students, using Leganto Reading Lists will be a lot simpler. Searching for course materials can be done directly in the Library Catalogue, and the system will integrate directly with Wattle.

This image shows what searching for a course in the Library Catalogue will look like. Course reserve materials will display a purple ‘COURSE’ icon.

This image show what the Leganto system will look like in Wattle for students. It will provide seamless integration between Wattle and the Library’s search and discovery platform.

This image shows the previous system, which required several steps to locate course materials and was not integrated with Wattle.

The pilot is providing helpful feedback on the new system, which will be used to improve the process for staff, academics and students by the time Leganto Reading Lists launches in 2023.
