Integrating the Library into Canvas: Home

undefinedWhy should I add a Librarian to my course?

Your librarian can:

  • integrate library materials, research guides, or learning modules into your course
  • participate in online discussions
  • respond to student questions
  • provide feedback on research assignments
  • collaborate with you on instruction and creation of digital learning objects

How can I add my Librarian in Canvas?

To add your Librarian to Canvas, first navigate to the People tool in the left hand navigation menu of Canvas. Here, select Add People. In the Add People window, follow the steps outlined below: 

  1. Under Add user(s) by, ensure that the Email Address radio button is selected, and enter your Subject Librarian's email address in the provided field.
  2. Next, click on the Role drop-down menu, and select Librarian or Teacher.
  3. Click Next to confirm your role selection.
  4. Canvas will verify that the email address is accurate in the next window and confirm if the user is ready to be added to your course. If you receive an error, be sure to go back and verify that you have entered the email address correctly before proceeding. Once Canvas confirms that you can add the user to the course site, click Add Users to complete the process.

Your Librarian will receive an email invitation to your Canvas site, and once they accept it, they are added to the course.
