Library Resources to Support Online Teaching & Learning

Research Guides & Canvas

Curated Content for your Specific Subject

Research Guides are a content management system used by libraries worldwide to curate and share information by creating online research guides on subjects, topics or for specific courses. 

Our Subject Librarians have put together guides to get you to the best databases, journals, electronic journals, and books for your specific subject. Each guide includes various resources specifically curated for your field of study, gathered in one place for an intuitive, efficient research experience.

Embedding Research Guides in Canvas

Clemson Libraries Research Guides can be automatically embedded into your Canvas courses and will appear in your course navigation under the "Library Resources" link.

All Canvas courses with Library Resources enabled will automatically display a guide with resources for your students. The image above illustrates this integration within a course. 

If you would like a different guide embedded in your course, browse our various research guides and contact your Subject Librarian for assistance.
