Library Tool in Canvas

The "University of Chicago Library" tool in Canvas displays a research guide matched automatically to your course by department or the custom guide for your course (more information below). Guides display recommended resources as well as contact information for relevant Library experts.

Contact Ask a Librarian to request changes to the tool in your Canvas course site.

Custom Research Guides for Your Courses

Librarians can create customized library research guides for your courses, highlighting relevant print and online resources. The Library will provide you with a URL for the guide, which can be linked from your Canvas site.
