The library is new to Canvas. We are currently working on creating pages and modules to embed library presence in Canvas courses.

We can work with you on adding resources, participating on discussion boards, conferences and sitting in on office hours. The possibilites are numerous for making a connection between the library and the students through Canvas.

Please contact Elise Bohn to see what the library can do for you in Canvas.
