Add library resources to Canvas course pages.

Jan 08, 2019 · Jeff Kushkowski

Faculty who add the new ISU Library Resources tab to their Canvas sections give students seamless access to library resources. The tab for each course page is customized for a department, relieving faculty members of the need to search for relevant library resources. The embedded items are customized, so students (and teachers) can be confident that the resources listed will be relevant for class assignments. Students can also contact a librarian, for example, to ask a question or set up a research appointment.

The tab includes links to discipline-specific research guides, relevant databases and a librarian contact.

Step-by-step instructions for enabling this function are in the Embed Library Guides website in Canvas, and here’s the short version:

  • To add this page on the course menu, click Settings and select the Navigation tab.
  • From the list find ISU Library Resources and click to Enable it.
  • Click Save, and you are done.

Technical questions about the library resources tab may be directed to librarian Rano Marupova. Questions about the library's instructional support for courses can be directed to Jeff Kushkowski.
