Y WEST? EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR 2019 202 0 2 Canvas Librarian Role There is the course instructor and the librarian collaborate to support stud ents in their research process. This voluntary role allows course instructors to invite librarians (like me! ) into their class and assign a role that is clearly defined and recognizable to teachers, students, instructional designers, and librarians. In concert with the course instruct or, librarians will be able to: o Access course materials o Embed library research guides o Add course content (e.g. tutorials, tools, Information Literacy modules) o Participate in discussion boards o Communicate with students Librarians do not have access to grades or other sensitive information . The librarian and instructor will agree upon the content that is added and the involvement of the librarian. I also want to emphasize that before I become involve in the course (via the librarian role), we should communicate to discuss how much involvement on my part you are looking for. In addition to being able to add a librarian role for me, should you want to, you can also now embed library research guides. What does this mean concretely? It means that students would have direct access to my research guides, right there, on your Canvas course pag e. For instance, if you are teaching an Italian class and wanted to embed my Italian Studies guide, if you follow the steps below, my Italian Studies guide is the one that will automatically appear in your Canvas course. Should you have any questions or n eed my help to add me and/or embed my research guide, please email at .
