Bring the library into Canvas: Invite a subject specialist

This guide is for TAs, instructors, Canvas admin, and subject specialists at Stanford. It outlines 1) how to invite a subject specialist to contribute to a Canvas course site and 2) how to embed a library guide into a Canvas course site.

Subject specialists

At Stanford Libraries, subject specialists collect information resources that support the teaching and learning initiatives of departments across campus. In addition to collecting, subject specialists provide individual consultations and lead group workshops to help students, faculty, and staff navigate the plethora of information resources within a field of study.

You can add a subject specialist directly to a Canvas course site, where they can provide the information resources your students need in an environment your students are familiar with.
