T3: Adding Library Resources to a Canvas Course

The Library Resources integration in Canvas syncs with our LibGuides system to automatically load the appropriate library research guide into your Canvas course. We use the course name and number to determine if a particular course guide or a subject guide is the best fit for your course. Please contact your liaison librarian if you want an individual course page or you have additional questions. You can see our full list of guides at: http://libguides.uww.edu.
