Canvas Modules for Library Support

I have developed a number of library research modules in Canvas, and they are ready to be imported into your courses! It is a short but growing list, and I welcome your input about the modules you'd like to see next!

If you see a module you'd like to import, I've listed the steps below:

Steps for Importing a Library Research Module into Your Canvas Course

Start by logging in to Canvas and going to your Dashboard

Along the left side of the screen will be a green bar menu, select the Commons button:

Now you are in the Canvas Commons, which contains thousands of modules produced by people all over the world.

Using Harvard Business Review Articles and Cases

Harvard Business Publishing has very restrictive rules for using their materials, essentially, it is not permitted for anyone to print, link to, or otherwise share any of their articles or cases for any educational purposes, either in class, on Canvas, via library reserves, or any other method. If you do want to use Harvard Business Review articles or cases in your teaching, you will need to create an Educator's Account there, then create a coursepack of the articles you want that students will have to pay to download. If students access articles or cases through your account, they will be able to download materials at a slightly discounted rate.

Please contact Penny Scott: for questions about Harvard Business Publishing materials.
