Course Resource Lists - The Ex Libris Reading List Solution (1:49)

Why use Course Resource List?

Course Resource List is a tool designed to help instructors incorporate outside resources in their Canvas courses. Instructors can build reading lists that include library materials, videos, web resources, and more.


  • Identify and link directly to resources; no need to deal with link maintenance
  • Materials can be saved and reused in other courses or future semesters
  • Materials are added to Canvas so students have easy access
  • Avoid copyright issues by directly linking to electronic resources

This guide contains instructions to help get you started.  For individualized help, contact your subject librarian.
