Embed library content into Canvas
The St. Thomas Libraries subscribe to thousands of unique journals, streaming videos, and streaming audio online and hundreds of databases for use in teaching and research. We encourage you to place direct links to these resources within Canvas (Canvas: Integrating Library Resources) and on web pages:
- Easy access for students to exactly what faculty want them to use
- Fewer copyright concerns - the link is to something for which we've already paid
- Linking generates usage statistics - so that we do not cancel highly used materials
