Adding a Librarian to Your Canvas Course

Why Should You Add a Library to your Canvase Course?

In Canvas, you can add your Subject Librarian to your course in the Librarian.  This role allows your librarian to view, add, and modify content, as well as interact with your students.

This allows Librarians to:

  • Add library-related content to your course, such as video tutorials and self-paced research modules
  • Interact with your students
  • Provide feedback and assign grades related to library-based assignments. It does not give them access to the overall course Gradebook.

Which Librarian Should You Add? Contact Your Subject Liaison.

Each Reference Librarian serves as a Subject Liaison for a group of Stonehill College departments. Liaisons focus on improving reference services to their assigned departments, contribute to collection development, and provide faculty with a personal point of contact for requesting acquisitions.
