Adding Library resources to Canvas

This Guide provides information on how to link to and embed Library resources into your Canvas course and when you need to consider copyright.

Canvas / Library Integration

The Library has many resources to enhance and complement your teaching. These resources can be linked to or embedded easily within your Canvas course.

This guide covers finding and adding Library subscription resources as well as open-web resources.

Using the Reading Lists tool in Canvas to add resources is best practice since it provides numerous benefits to both staff and students. However, if you are unable to use Reading Lists, this guide also covers alternative methods of adding resource links to Canvas.
