Note: Leganto replaces the previous readings management system Equella-CAL.

Leganto is a comprehensive, dynamic reading list tool, which allows lecturers to create off-campus links to library resources such as journal articles and books/e-books, digitised book chapters, as well as freely available online content. It provides students with easy access to their unit readings on any device through an easy to use interface.

Support for Leganto is provided by the ACU Library. The following resources are available:
