Information about EBSCO's Reading Lists, available through Canvas.

What are Reading Lists in Canvas?

Readings Lists provides a way to create and manage course reading lists within Canvas.  Reading Lists enable you to link to resources available through library subscription databases and those freely available on the web.  

For the most part, links to selected sources are persistent and stable; Please contact Kate Moore if you have any questions about setting up Reading Lists in Canvas or encounter any issues with access.

  • easily link to readings instead of uploading resources to Canvas
  • annotate entire reading lists or individual readings
  • import reading lists from your other courses
  • potentially reduce textbook costs for students
  • lets librarians know what resources you value and use
