Linking to Articles & Other Resources: Canvas: Reading List

Learn how to link to articles and other resources in the library's databases to put in Canvas, bibliographies, or syllabi, share via email, or save in your browser.

Introducing Reading List Builder for Canvas

The EBSCO Reading List External Tool provides an easy way to create and manage course reading lists right from the Canvas Learning Management System. These readings will connect right to library resources, reducing the risk of violating copyright through downloads of PDFs, and without needing to manage a bunch of attachments.

Enable the Reading List External Tool: 

  • To start with ERL, you first need to activate access in a Canvas course site module
  • Next, in a module you've set up, Click Modules, left navigation column  
  • Next, click the plus sign (+) within the module, top right corner
  • Choose External Tool in the pull-down menu  
  • Choose EBSCO Reading List
