For Faculty: Online Library Resources During the CoronaVirus Crisis: Canvas & the Library

What is the ChabotLibrary LTI App?

ChabotLibrary LTI is an online tool that takes resources found from our EBSCOhost Discovery Service (EDS) and makes content from it appear as seamlessly as possible in a Learning Management System's course such as your Canvas or Canvas course.

You have a search tool where you can enter known title words and then click on the +Add button for the source you desire to include into your course module.  PDF, HTML or links to full-text readings will appear right from the Canvas platform itself!
