Yes, Library staff can make a PDF a read-only file that students cannot download from their Leganto Reading List. 

Add your PDF file to Leganto following the instructions for adding a print book chapter (see link at the bottom of this page), but follow the steps below to include a note to Library staff to make this request:

  1. Once you have added your citation and attached the file, click save and close
  2. Navigate to the citation in your reading list and click on the title to open the details screen (this is also how you will complete the necessary Copyright declaration steps).
  3. In the right hand panel, click the Notes to/from Library tab and write your comment.
  4. Click Submit Comment

Tip: Alternatively, you can add the note when you click into the details screen to include the note to the Library.
