Embedding SCC Library Resources (for Faculty)

Instructions and ideas for embedding library resources into Canvas.

Embed an entire library into Canvas

NOW AVAILABLE: a pre-installed "SCC Digital Library" link is already installed in every Canvas shell.  There are also subject-specific guides available OR we can make a special guide for your discipline or course.  Just get in touch to let us know what you need! 

You can also save, bookmark, share (etc) this link: https://libguides.solano.edu/libraryresources

If you'd like to have the library embedded in a specific area of your class (ie: a module), you can create a content item in a specific canvas module to house the library link.

To do this:

1. Find the module you'd like to add the library link to and click the + sign on the right hand side of the module 

add an object to a canvas module

2. Select "ADD AS AN EXTERNAL URL":

External URL config screen

URL: copy/paste the link to the libguide you've selected to embed to your module

Page Name: whatever you want the libguide to be called in your shell.  (ie: Library Links, Digital Library, Library Access, Use the Library, Research tools, It’s Five O Clock Somewhere..… whatever you like, really.)

If you would like a Libguide that is specific to your subject matter or course so that you can embed it to a shell, please email erin.duane@solano.edu or scclibrary@solano.edu
