Library Resources for Canvas

This guide is available to assist instructors with utilizing library resources in Canvas.

Databases in Canvas

If your course utilizes a specific library database or two, the easiest way to get your students access to that database is to embed it directly into your Canvas course. This will allow your students to go directly to the resource without having to navigate multiple clicks and scrolls. Additionally, it will automatically insert the proxy for Off Campus users, prompting any Off Campus user to log in first. 

*Note: Summon is not considered a database and is, therefore, not in the Database A to Z list this system uses. If you would like to embed Summon into your course, please see the Library Guides in Canvas page in the left-hand navigation for information on embedding a Summon search box.*

The video below will demonstrate how to embed Academic Search Complete. The video has no sound.
