Adding Library resources to Canvas

This guide provides information on linking and embedding Library resources in your Canvas course and ensuring copyright compliance.

Library collections

The Library has a vast array of resources, including books, journals, newspapers, videos, images, and more. Explore our collections to see what we have.

You can use LibrarySearch to find most Library-subscribed material - it is particularly useful for links to books and journal articles.

However, not all Library subscribed resources appear individually in LibrarySearch. For more comprehensive searching use relevant full-text databases. Refer to the database listings in the discipline-specific Subject Guides.

Follow instructions under Tools for linking to resources to enable both on- and off-campus access to learning material.

Remember that if requesting digitisation of a portion of a print book, then only one chapter or 10% can be scanned and made accessible via eReserve.

Open Educational Resources (OERs)

OERs are teaching resources which are legally, freely and openly available online.

OERs cover a wide range of materials: textbooks, lecture notes, tests or exams, curricula, projects, assignments, syllabi, audio, video, simulations, animation and more.
