Library Support for Online Teaching: Home

Welcome to Your Virtual Library!

Although the library building is closed, our reference services and extensive collection of digital resources are available online, and the librarians are on duty to assist you and your students. As you make the transition to remote instruction, this guide has tips to ensure that your course materials are available online for your students and provide any library instruction they may need during spring quarter.

New Reading List Tool in Canvas

In Summer 2020, the Library embedded a new tool in Canvas called “Reading List.” It allows faculty to create reading lists for students to view without leaving their Canvas course. Students will be able to see in real time how many copies of a required textbook the library has and directly access class readings available in our library databases, links to websites, and instructor-provided digital documents.To learn more about Reading Lists in Canvas, please consult the following resources:
