 +===== Reading/​course list solutions and the move to engagement with content =====

 +[[https://​www.kenchadconsulting.com/​wp-content/​uploads/​2021/​04/​BS08-Ken-Chad-UKSG2021-Farewell-discovery-hello-curation-.pdf|Farewell discovery – hello curation and engagement]]\\
 +UKSG Conference 12-14 April 2021 (Group A Breakout session No. 8 ). Over the last 20 years or so, universities have made considerable investments in library centric discovery services. Nevertheless,​ for some students, especially undergraduates,​ discovery has become largely irrelevant. They simply log on to their learning management system to find ready prepared links to the print and electronic resources they need that week for their course or module. This is typically because the learning system is linked to a library managed reading/​resource list solution. Reading/​resource list solutions are essentially ‘curation’ tools. By curation I mean selecting, refining and arranging to add value. The content of a reading list is curated primarily by academics who select the best resources and list them.
 +
 +**The next step  is helping students engage with the content**. This has become increasingly important in a ‘flipped classroom’ environment where COVID has accelerated the trend to an online learning environment. We are now seeing the rise of specific solutions to better enable engagement with content. They typically encourage group ‘community’ ​ interaction with students who are asked to analyse the content and engage with the reading itself. This UKSG presentation describes and analyses this important trend towards the better curation of, and engagement with content. It  encourage librarians to work more closely with university teaching and learning staff and technologists to adopt approaches and solutions that help students better engage with content which, in turn will lead to better learning outcomes
 +==== '​Social reading'​ functionality in Ex Libris Leganto ====
 +
 +Ex Libris Leganto now [[https://​exlibrisgroup.com/​products/​leganto-reading-list-management-system/​distance-remote-learning-course-resources-2/​|includes '​social reading'​ functionality]] to '​encourage students to engage with their course materials in a meaningful way' ​ 'With the Leganto tool, students can now:
 +
 +  * Share comments, questions, and feedback by marking up course materials
 +  * Annotate PDF files assigned by the instructor
 +  * Communicate ideas with classmates
 +  * Add private notes
 +
 +Communication occurs when it’s most relevant and effective. Students are encouraged to participate and become immersed in the course content in new ways.'
