Embedding SCC Library Resources (for Faculty)

Instructions and ideas for embedding library resources into Canvas.

What can you embed to your Canvas course shell?

Subject & Research Guides

Link or embed a library guide: it can be tailored to your course and/or subject area OR you can simply embed our general "Digital Library" guide to get your students pointed towards the library and its resources

e-reference Chat Box

Place the library's "Ask Your Librarian" chat box in your class so students can easily connect with a librarian (24/7) to get research support.


Create single links or reading lists full of library database articles: magazines, journals, newspapers, reports, transcripts, etcetera.

Films on Demand

A streaming video database that covers nearly every academic discipline; among the producers included are National Geographic, HBO, TED, Frontline, PBS, BBC, and more.

DSM 5: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition

The mental disorder classification manual published by the American Psychiatric Association.

Academic Search Complete

A leading resource for scholarly research across multiple disciplines; contains journals, periodicals, reports, books, videos, and more.

e-book central

A digital collection of ebooks in a super-wide range of subject areas. This one is a librarian go-to for fast access to a great collection.

New York Times

Register an account first at or on the app. You will need your MySolano username and password credentials to complete this step. Once you have a NYT account, you can visit directly.

You also have access to the historic New York Times (1851-1980) and its archives (1981-present).

For articles 1851-1922: free, no limits
For articles 1923-1980: free, limited to 5 articles daily
For articles 1981-present: free, no limits


The library has an amazing array of digital options for faculty use in their Canvas shells.  Beyond the usual books and articles, we also offer streaming media, e-magazines, fine art images, librarian reference chat, and libguides (tailored or general research guides like the one you're clicking through now.)
