Embedding Library Content at Point-of-Need in Canvas

How do I integrate the library's resources and collections into my Canvas courses effectively and efficiently?

Embedding Librarians

Instruction librarians are ready and eager to collaborate with faculty. We offer a wide range of instructional services to support your courses.

Among the various types of support we can provide you, librarians can be embedded into your Canvas courses to support students at point-of-need. This usually takes the form of a weeklong librarian-facilitated discussion board. Customized instructional materials can be provided to your students in advance of the DB, where they are then asked to apply what they have learned in the context of course learning outcomes. Alternatively, librarians can facilitate a semester long “ask the librarian” discussion board. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to work with online faculty, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have an idea in mind for how we can work collaboratively to best support your students.
