Library Course Materials (Leganto)


CSUDH University Library's Library Course Materials tool in Blackboard or Canvas is designed to help instructors incorporate library materials in their Blackboard courses. Instructors can use the tool to build reading lists that include books and articles owned by the library, videos, web resources, and more.Pictograph of a computer workstation with a screenshot of Library Course Materials in the faculty resource list view


  • Instructors search in OneSearch and link directly to resources; no need to deal with off-campus access or permalink maintenance
  • Course materials can be saved and reused in other courses or future semesters
  • Course materials lists are added to Blackboard or Canvas course navigation so that students have easy access

This page contains instructions to help you get started, or you can check out some general video tutorials from within Blackboard or Canvas by clicking on the question mark. For individualized help with choosing resources, contact your liaison librarian.
