This video explains what a Reading List is and how you can add the LTI to your Canvas course. Learn how to create and add Collaborators to a Reading List, along with how to use 'cite it' and add and remove sections from a Reading List.

1. Log into your Canvas course. Select Settings at the bottom of your course navigation menu.
2. On the Settings screen, select the Navigation tab at the top of the screen.
3. Find the Reading List tool in the bottom list of disabled navigation items.
You can drag and drop the Reading List tool into the enabled list.
Alternatively, select the Edit icon next to Reading List, and select Enable.

Setting up the style of your Reading List.
TIP: Reading Lists are divided into Sections, give each section a meaningful title that will help students in navigating through the list. An example being Supplementary Readings, Recordings, Week 1, Topic 1.
Creating your own style
Collaborators have editing rights to a list and are able to add resources to the list.
Collaborators could be Library staff, sessional staff, learning designers, or teaching colleagues.
Collaborators can be assigned editing rights or can be an ‘owner’ of the list.
