Library Course Materials page

Why use the Library Course Materials page?

The Library Course Materials page is designed to help instructors add articles, ebooks, links, and uploaded materials to their Canvas courses in the form of a reading list. Instructors can build reading lists themselves, or the University Libraries can provide assistance.

Don't see the Library Course Materials menu option in your Canvas course? Follow these instructions to enable the Library Course Materials menu option.

Add materials yourself, or submit your reading list to Libraries Course Materials Services. We will build the list for you!
