Provide Access Through Canvas
Canvas is a great way to make materials available to your class.
Create links
To ensure compliance with copyright law and licensing agreements, please link to content from your Canvas site, rather than uploading PDFs downloaded from electronic resources. 
Make sure your links are persistent and proxied, so they work seamlessly for your students.
Turn on Library Tools
If you place materials on reserve at one of our libraries, turn on “Library Tools” in your Canvas course so students can see the items listed there.
  1. In Canvas, go to Settings > Navigation.
  2. Drag and drop Library Tools from the hidden options into your active course navigation.
  3. Save your changes.
Once it’s been added to your course navigation, go to the Library Tools page and select the Edit tab. 
Select the Course Reserves button and save
See the directions provided on the edit screen for additional guidance and other elements you can add.
Our Guide to Integrating Library Services and Resources with Canvas also provides an overview of instructional modules you can use to teach research skills.
