Embedding LibGuide Content Boxes into Canvas

You are able to add individual library guide boxes and pages directly into Canvas.  Please follow the steps below:

1. From an existing module, click the “+” button

2. Add “External Tool”

3. Select “LibApps Library Content” from the menu of items.

4. Choose the desired LibGuide/Page/Content Box from the drop down menus and click “Embed Content” Keep in mind: Since a single content box can be embedded, this allows any item in a library guide (such LibChat widget, LibCal widgets, A-Z database assets, etc.) to be included. 

5. Click on 'Add Item' to finalize your selection.
