Instructors' Guide for Linking Library Resources to Course Materials in Canvas

The library has prepared a guide for Tulane teaching faculty that provides information about how to link Howard-Tilton Memorial Library resources--such as articles in online journals, eBooks, and films in streaming media format--to course materials such as syllabi or class session documents in the Canvas learning management system or otherwise online.

The guide has step-by-step directions for linking articles, eBooks, and streaming media within Canvas in ways that allow students to access these licensed digital resources even when outside the campus network.  It also has related practical information about Copyright and Fair Use, licensing limitations, and other important considerations when linking library resources to course materials online.   
Readers will notice two points consistent throughout the guide:
  • Making use of high-quality library resources through course materials and assignments online is important to teaching students patterns of good scholarship
  • In doing so it's also important to adhere to copyright guidelines and licensing restrictions on published material
