Leganto Working Group

The Ex Libris Users of North America (ELUNA) Leganto Working Group (WG) began work in January 2018. In close collaboration with the IGeLU Leganto Working Group, the Working Group prepares the yearly Leganto NERS ballot, assists with conference planning, and works with Ex Libris management on developing focus groups. Past focus groups included the Purchase Request Integrations, UX, and Librarian Analytics Dashboard focus groups.

There are many benefits that the Leganto Working Group will provide to the user community. The Leganto mailing list is a valuable resource for users of the product through it’s ability to help share ideas and issues and workarounds that have been identified. The Leganto WG will coordinate the enhancement process with the IGeLU Leganto WG and Ex Libris. They will develop sessions of interest at the annual ELUNA conferences. They will communicate with other WG’s that have an impact on Leganto, such as the IGeLU Leganto WG, Alma, Analytics, and Interoperability Working Groups. The WG will communicate directly with Ex Libris management to share and communicate issues of interest to the ELUNA community.
