Online Resources for Faculty: Canvas & the Library

Online resources from the library and the web to aid in online instruction during the coronavirus crisis.

Canvas Commons

The VC Library has content in the Canvas Commons that can be directly imported into your courses. There are a few ways you can preview the library's content.

If you are interested in something custom-made for your class or a specific assignment, please contact us and we'll be happy to create a page or module for you.

Library Apps in Canvas

When creating a new Canvas page, you can find the following library apps under "External Tool" that will allow you to easily search and embed library content. 

  • Films on Demand
    Search and embed videos from the Films on Demand Collection
  • LibApps Library Content
    Search and embed content from any of our Library Guides (full guides, or specific pages)

For more information on using these tools, visit our Embedding Library Content in Canvas page.
