SC4 Librarians create subject specific content, worked with faculty to find resources for their courses, and created how-to guides to support students. All Library Research Guides can be embedded into courses in Canvas using LTI. 

You can add library research guide content to an existing module, or create a separate module within Canvas to hold "library stuff"

Log into Canvas and navigate to your course. 

Go to the Modules tab. If you are creating a Library module, select +Module

click modules, add modules
