Integrating the Library into Canvas Courses

How to Import a Commons Module

To add a library module from the Canvas Commons to your course.

  1. Open your course.
  2. Click Import from Commons in the upper right corner of the page to be taken to the Canvas Commons.
  3. Search for Thompson Library.
  4. In the resulting content look for the module you want and select it.
  5. On the module's page you can preview the content before clicking Import/Download to open a side menu.
  6. On the side menu select the course you want to import the module, then click Import.
  7. The module will appear in your course and gradebook shortly.

With the transition to Canvas, the Library has adapted and shared an Avoiding Plagiarism module in Canvas Commons. All content is the same between the live webinars, the Blackboard organization, and the Canvas module.

We will be developing additional Canvas modules on topics including:

  • Library orientation
  • Searching library resources
  • Evaluating resources

If you have suggestions or requests for additional topics, please email Liz Svoboda, esvoboda@umich.edu.
