Posting Library Content to Canvas

Quick links: From Library eCollections (Articles and Books) | From Streaming Video |

  • If you want the Library to consider purchasing content in any format for your class(es), e-mail library@stedwards.edu.  The library will not purchase textbooks or course materials for sale in the bookstore.
  • Contact the Instructional Technology Hub for help using scanned book chapters or articles that are not a part of the Munday Library’s collection. For copyright considerations, please consult the  guide to Copyright Resources.

From the Library eCollections (Articles and Books)

  1. From the Library e-Collections (Articles and Books): Find the article or eBook you want from the library’s website.
    Some e-books cannot be accessed by multiple users at the same time. If you have questions about the e-book you want to use, feel free to e-mail library@stedwards.edu for more information.
  2. Open a separate window or tab in your browser. Using Canvas, access the “Rich Content Editor” in the area in which you would like to post library content (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes or Syllabus).
  3. Using the linking icon in the rich content editor, copy and paste Permalink from the library record anywhere within a rich content editor. (If you are unfamiliar with this feature in Canvas, please consult How do I create a hyperlink in the Rich Content Editor as an instructor?).

How do I Find the Permalink in the Library Search?

Once you find the article or eBook you would like to link to from the library’s website, click on the title and you should see an option under “Share” where you can select the permalink.  It will generate the correct URL to paste into Canvas.

Once you have found the resource you’re interested in, click on the title. A screen will pop up which shows the database(s) that the streaming video is available in.  Under “View Online,” Click on the blue link to go to the database where you can view the streaming video. Once the streaming video loads, you’ll want to choose “Embed” under the “Share” link.   Follow the Canvas instructions for embedding video.  If you need help, e-mail us from the library’s website.
