Course Readings

Instructions for faculty and staff for adding and managing Course Readings in Canvas

IMPORTANT: Library Review & Publish List

Library Review
When you are ready for library staff to begin processing your list (fulfilling digitization, purchasing, licensing, and course reserves requests and testing links), you must hit the "Library Review" button on your Reading List to notify them you want them to start working on it!  You must "Library Review" again if you continue adding citations or the Library won't be notified of the new citations.
Your list isn't visible to students until it is changed from Draft to Published.  Feel free to change this setting yourself.  When the library staff is finished processing your list, they will check to see if it is Published.  If it isn't, they will change it from Draft to Published.  If you would prefer it not be Published, you can change it back to Draft or let staff know you don't want it published when you send it.  Visibility can also be managed with Start and End Dates.

Student & Library Discussions

Instructors can use the Course Readings platform for discussions in the Student Discussion and Library Discussion areas. See below for how an instructor can view discussions, submit a comment, and delete discussion(s) once they are no longer useful.
