Integrating Library Content in Canvas

This is a comprehensive guide to help instructors and librarians provide the best resources for students via Canvas.

Integrating LibGuides/E-Reserves into Canvas

The Library Resources link for your LibGuide or E-Reserves should appear in your Canvas Course Navigation without any action on your part. If it does not appear:

  1. Go To Settings.
  2. Click the Navigation Tab.
  3. Drag Library Resources from the list of Disabled navigation items (the grayed-out list at the bottom) to the location you wish it to appear in the upper list of items to appear to students in the Course Navigation.
  4. Click Save at the bottom.

Note: If you do not wish Library Resources to appear, reverse the drag-and-drop in step 3.
