LibGuides in Canvas


The LibGuides – Canvas LTI allows faculty to embed selected LibGuides into pages in their Canvas site. This allows students to access research guide information without having to leave their Canvas course shell. Librarians at the College and the Institute can work with faculty to design custom research guides for their courses.

Get Started


Faculty can access the LTI by clicking on the plugin icon in the editor window when in edit mode within a page, assignment, discussion, etc. From there:

  1. Select Library Resources.
  2. Select the appropriate LibGuides Site.
  3. Select the Content Type, Guide, and Guide page.
  4. Click Embed Content.
  5. Click Save to save the updated Canvas page.
