Embedding Library Content into Canvas: Embedding LibGuides

LibGuides: subject guides, research tutorials, citation guides, and more now in Canvas

Embedding LibGuides

Library guides (LibGuides) are web-based guides put together by librarians to provide assistance in using library materials, identifying resources for topics and courses, and much more. We have hundreds of LibGuides available, and we can always work with you to find or create guides to support your courses. 

We have recently developed an LTI that embeds LibGuide content directly into Canvas.  This next section of the guide will walk you through identifying and embedding LibGuide content into your Canvas course.
