Embedding library resources in Canvas

Embedding a Library Guide in Canvas

Albertsons Library has online guides (LibGuides) created by librarians to give students a starting point for research in their respective subject areas and to help students use library resources more effectively.  

In Blackboard, the guides were automatically embedded through a special program/building block.  This building block is not available in Canvas.  Do not worry.  You can still embed a LibGuide into your Canvas Course so it is easier for students to access Library Resources.

How do I do it you ask?
