1. Use OneSearch or one of the ebook databases to find the book you would like to add.

To add an ebook in Canvas:


Depending on the database, the permalinks may be in different areas of the screen or have different names.

See the "Locating the Permanent Link or Permalink" page for more information on permalinks.

In EBSCOhost databases, the permalink is shown below. Clicking on the permalink symbol (1) will bring up the actual permalink (2).

In ProQuest databases, you will want to look for "Share link to book" as shown below.

Clicking the Share link to book will open a pop-up window, shown below.

You may now copy and paste the URL into your Canvas course.


If you experience problems or have trouble locating the permalink, please ask a librarian!
