Library Services in Canvas

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

LibGuides

Subject-specific LibGuides are assigned to courses automatically, but you also can request Canvas course guide integration for different guides or course-specific guides. Alternatively, you can use the manual tool in Canvas to add the library resources page or specific items into a variety of locations within a course. Note that this this level of integration is opt-in, not automatic. See our Manual Integration Instructions for details.

E-Reserves

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.

Credo Information Literacy Modules

These online tutorials help students learn foundational information literacy skills. Visit our Credo Information Literacy Modules page for 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. Contact Torrie Raish at vrc112@psu.edu for more information.
