Librarian Role

Librarians should be enrolled into a course in a way that identifies to the students the role they serve in the course while limiting what course information librarians can access. This can be done using the Librarian Role.

Benefits of utilizing the Librarian Role in Canvas:

  • Students see the librarian with the correct title instead of TA, Instructor, etc., which can cause confusion
  • Librarians are unable to assign or view grades
  • Librarians will still be able to assist with incorporating library resources in courses 

*Note: Before adding a librarian to any course, please be sure to contact your library liaison.*
