The Ex Libris Group produces a suite of library management tools. The UC Davis Library manages Ex Libris on campus and acquired the Leganto LTI tool to make a connection between Canvas and Ex Libris for creating course reserve lists. The tool is titled, “Reading List,” and can be found in the Course Navigation for every course. Instructors are able to create, edit and submit booklists for their courses from within Canvas. Students will be able to see specific information about reserved texts such as call number and availability.
This tool can be found in the main navigation menu.
- Go to Settings->Navigation to look for the tool.
- If it is currently visible, it will be in the top group of nav items, if not, it will be in the bottom group that are visible only to instructors.
- To make a tool visible to students in their course navigation menu, drag the tool from the bottom group to the top, then press Save.
