In Canvas, how do I use the Reading Lists tool?

Reading Lists allows instructors to create and manage course reading lists by searching library resources within Canvas.

After adding the Reading Lists tool to any Canvas module using the External Tools menu, instructors are then able to search high-quality content, both scholarly and popular, available through library databases. Instructors can add and save content to a reading list by clicking Add to Resource List found below the article title on the database results page. Instructors can start from a new list or select from a previously created one.

Items on reading lists may be annotated. Instructors can create multiple reading lists for each module and/or course, and may copy other reading lists for use in their own courses. Once an instructor creates a reading list, it will remain unpublished until they are ready to publish it in the appropriate Canvas module. Students will be able to access reading lists within specific Canvas modules. The Reading Lists tool will not be visible to students in the navigation menu.

More information about the Reading Lists tool is available from your campus library. For a general introduction to and demonstration of the tool, see the vendor's documentation.
