Library Reading Lists in Canvas

Trouble shooting and FAQs

Students cannot see the link to the list in Canvas.

Unfortunately, this can happen for several reasons:

  • Ensure the class and the list has been published.
  • If the class and list have been published and only one student cannot see the list, please contact the library so we can troubleshoot.


When students click on a link to a reading, they are unable to access it.

This can happen for a number of reasons. If you notice that a link is not working, you can click on Report a Broken Link on the right side.


Can I use the same list in multiple courses or sections?

The short answer is yes! But please contact your library so we can ensure the list is copied properly.
