Aiming to sustain relevancy in a changing academic environment, libraries work hard to maintain their institution as the center for intellectual engagement, learning and collaboration – the heart of the campus. This means not only anticipating needs for classroom instruction and materials but looking for opportunities to reduce costs of learning for students and provide enhanced opportunities for instructor-student engagement. Reading list management solutions, such as Ex Libris Leganto, bring the library in to the course development process, giving instructors a deeper view into the library’s holdings, and providing librarians with a seamless workflow to deliver materials to students, at an ultimately lower cost and with greater stakeholder engagement all around. 

In collaboration with Library Journal, this webcast will showcase initiatives at University of St. Thomas as they create a digitally-enabled, 21st-century higher education institution. Spearheaded by a new faculty support unit (STELAR - St. Thomas eLearning and Research and the University Libraries), the shared expertise of faculty, instructional designers, and library staff come together to enhance the classroom experience. One major project has been the implementation of Ex Libris Leganto with a goal of improving course materials delivery and learning affordability by utilizing existing university investments in library resources.

Join this live webinar to learn more about the benefits in the St. Thomas Vision 2020 initiative, and how Ex Libris Leganto provides concrete solutions to these major issues in librarianship.
