Copyright, course readings and Leganto

29 June 2022

Do you have any course readings to upload to your Akoraka | Learn course page for Semester 2?

ALL course readings on Akoraka | Learn or printed in a course handbook need to be uploaded via our copyright management system (Leganto), to avoid the university and/or staff being sued for breach of copyright.

Leganto is easy to use and in addition to managing copyright, it has advantages for:

  • linking to an article/eBook that the library subscribes to: Using Leganto makes sure the link will work for students studying from home as well as on-campus
  • linking to web resources: Leganto has a browser bookmark to make this easy
  • short loan requests: These can be actioned through Leganto instead of filling out a separate form

After you create a course reading list, you can add a link for each resource or you can add a link for each Module/Topic reading list.

You can access help with Leganto on Te Kete Wānaka or by contacting Teaching Quality (
