Library Resources for Canvas

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


Please note: This page is currently under construction as the library switches services for permalink access. We will have this page updated as soon as possible. 

Utilizing Permalinks in Canvas Course for Library Resources

Instead of uploading articles, chapters of books and other course documents, where possible use a permalink to the library resource itself. This allows the students to have direct access to the resource from the vendor - giving students the ability to interact with the resources in a number of ways, including accessibility options. You can also use the permalink to link to specific records in the Library Catalog. 

It is also recommended to add the proxy to the permalink while setting it up, allowing students to log in for Off Campus use without having to leave your Canvas course. See below for information on how to do this.

*Note: If you are linking to an individual database, please use the Library Guides tool. Information on this can be found on the Databases in Canvas page in the left-hand navigation.*
