The Library Research Button allows LibGuides to be embedded in a Canvas course. The default LibGuide is the Introduction to Library Research Guide, which provides a general introductory guide to the library research process and resources. Some librarians have enabled subject specific research guides which provide links to resources within the discipline. If a discipline specific guide is not yet assigned, you can contact your subject specialist to inquire if one can be assigned.
To add the LibGuide to Canvas, the instructor should take the following steps:
1. Select Settings
2. Select the Navigation tab
3. Drag the Library Research item up to the visible navigation list
4. Press Save at the bottom of the page
A “Librarian” role in Canvas can help the course instructor and the librarian collaborate to support students in their research process.
This voluntary role allows course instructors to invite librarians into their class and assign a role that is clearly defined and recognizable to teachers, students, instructional designers, and librarians.
In concert with the course instructor, librarians will be able to:
Access course materials
Embed library research guides
Add course content (e.g. tutorials, tools)
Participate in discussion boards
Communicate with students
Librarians do not have access to grades or other sensitive information. The content that is added and the involvement of the librarian will be agreed upon by the librarian and instructor.
After contacting a subject specialist librarian, and agreeing on the level of involvement, the instructor can take the following steps to add the librarian in Canvas:
1. Select Manage Users
2. Select Add Users
3. Add the librarian's Gator ID (provided by the librarian)
4. Select "Librarian" as the role
5. Select Next
