Used for teaching a course, a resource list represents a persistent yet dynamic corpus of materials focused on a particular topic. Today, creating, maintaining, and monitoring resource lists; providing materials for them; and accessing their contents usually require multiple, non-integrated workflows and prevent the lists from realising their potential. Resource-list solutions, such as the one described here (Ex Libris Leganto), facilitate list creation through cross-system workflows involving the library. With an easy-to-use interface and new types of services, such solutions are expected to increase academics’ and students’ engagement and maximise the lists’ contribution to teaching and learning.
