Leganto Product Working Group


The IGeLU Leganto Product Working Group was formed in 2016, to support the release of the Ex Libris product, Leganto. The Working Group’s members are both development partners and early adopters of the product. The purpose of the Working Group is to strengthen the product through the establishment of a relationship between the user community and Ex Libris.

The goal of this group is to grow the relationship between the user community and Ex Libris, and co-ordinate the enhancement and future development of Leganto.

  • Group will participate in Ex Libris meetings and conferences to promote Leganto.
  • The group will bring Leganto technical concerns to Ex Libris.
