Library Services in Canvas

Library integration with Canvas brings library research guides (LibGuides), e-reserves and services like Ask a Librarian to students in Canvas courses through the Library Resources tab.


Subject-specific LibGuides are assigned to courses automatically, but you may also request different guides or course-specific guides by consulting with your subject librarian or campus librarian. The different tiers of integration are listed on the guide integration page.


E-Reserves may include links to licensed full-text articles, e-books, scanned book chapters, streaming audio and more. Visit Course Reserves for request forms and more information.

Embedded Librarian

The Librarian role in Canvas allows you to add a subject librarian to a course to consult with students and assist with research. Please note that this service cannot be done for every course. Contact Torrie Raish at for more information.
