Add Library Resources to a Canvas Course

The Library Resources - Guides integration in Canvas syncs with our LibGuides system to automatically load the appropriate library research guide or list of resources in your subject into your Canvas course. We use the course
name and number to determine if a particular course guide or a subject guide is the best fit for your course.

Activate the Library Resources Integration:

  1. Sign into Canvas
  2. From the Dashboard, select the course to which you will add the Library Resources integration
  3. From the course Home, select Settings

  1. Select Navigation from the tabs across the top
