Embedding Library Resources in Canvas: Library Guides

This guide is designed for LAVC faculty interested in adding Library resources into their Canvas courses

About Library Guides (AKA "LibGuides")

If you've ever brought your class to the Library for a research session, a librarian may have created a custom online Library Guide for your class. And heads up, you're using a Library Guide right now!

In addition to custom guides, the Library also has a selection of topical guides available on its website:

Good news: you can embed these guides directly inside your Canvas shell -- no need to send your students to the Library's website. 

The Library also manages its list of A-Z databases through the LibGuides platform. Using the Library Guides app inside Canvas, you can link your students directly to a Library database.
