Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has announced that WU – Vienna University of Economics and Business has gone live with the Ex Libris Leganto® course materials service. The university opted to move to the Leganto service as part of WU’s digitisation strategy, which calls for developing new forms of teaching and increasing support for distance learning. With the Leganto rollout, the library was ready to make the transition.
The Leganto solution, branded ‘read!t’ in its implementation at WU, is integrated with the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, which the university has been using for a number of years. This tight integration facilitates the selection of course materials by lecturers and simplifies their search for titles in the library collection. By promoting collaboration between library staff and lecturers, the Leganto solution helps maximise the use of the library’s own resources.
For students, the Leganto solution provides rapid access to the material required for their courses, thus giving the students more time to actually study the content. The solution also fosters discussion among the students and encourages them to recommend relevant resources to their classmates. In addition, using detailed Leganto analytics, the WU library can better align library holdings with lecturers’ needs and further streamline collection management.
