Leganto will help improve library efficiency, foster collaboration between reading list stakeholders, and deliver better library services to students
Bologna, Italy—November 9, 2017. Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that the Università degli Studi di Roma "Tor Vergata" (University of Rome Tor Vergata) has now gone live with the company’s Leganto SM course reading list solution. Along with Tor Vergata’s Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, the Leganto service will provide instructors and students with all the functionality needed for creating, maintaining, and using reading lists.
Leganto will improve the reading list process at Tor Vergata considerably, enabling instructors to easily create, maintain, and share course reading lists with students, the library, and with other faculty members. Leganto informs the library automatically of course resource needs while both instructors and students can immediately check item availability. Leganto also encourages instructors to use resources that the library already holds.
ICT Director Domenico Genovese explained, “Over the last three years, we have increased the number and quality of library services that we offer our patrons and have produced a digital environment to make their day-to-day research activities easier. One of the most important effects of these changes is the strengthening of our support for teaching and learning. Leganto now enables us to enhance library services to the benefit of the academic staff and students. We are also becoming more efficient as we streamline our workflows, boost the use of the library collections, and create an interactive and collaborative atmosphere for students, instructors, and librarians.”
Ofer Mosseri, corporate vice president and general manager of Ex Libris EMEA, commented, “We congratulate Tor Vergata on going live with Leganto. The university’s new reading list solution will make teaching materials available on time and will foster an environment in which students and teachers can discuss, recommend, and broaden the awareness of resources.”
