The Library and Canvas

Two ways to access the library in Canvas: A library Course, and Library Tools


Check Out the Library

Open this course (on your Canvas dashboard, click the library course tile) to learn all about library services and how to use them by completing the modules.

You will see these Modules: 

  • Welcome to the Library: Introduction to the building, services, and librarians 
  • How to use your library account 
  • How to get help with research 
  • How to find an article 
  • How to find a book 
  • How to cite your sources 
  • How to print, copy, scan in the library 

This asynchronous Course teaches the basic skills required to effectively use Library resources. This Course is perfect for 1st Years and Transfer students, but it is really for all students who need to know how to use the library.


This Course is a work in progress and there is a link to submit anonymous comments.  We will be working with the feedback continually.

The library is in your other Canvas courses!

In your other Canvas courses, there is now a Library Tools link on the left side.  Click this to see Library subject and course guides, library reserves for your course, database lists, and even your librarian! *
