Course Resources is a tool to create and organize lists of course materials and share them with students. It allows instructors to easily find resources, create lists, share these lists with students, and communicate with library staff. Once you send your list to the library, we will review it and gather items we do not already have in our collection. As items are reviewed and processed, they will be visible to your students in Canvas.
If you had a library resource list from the past, it should appear in Course Resources under the LIST menu.
Lists are rolled over from year to year based on course code, section, and term. You may see lists that do not belong to you. Feel free to ignore lists you do not want. We will be cleaning up old lists over the next year.
If the course, section, and term remain the same, then you should see your old list attached to your current course. If you do not, you can associate an old list with your current course. Use the top menu and choose: Manage course association.
In order for your list to be processed by the library, the list must be sent to the library. Click SEND TO LIBRARY, after which the list status will change from DRAFT to PUBLISHED. As soon as the list is sent, it will be visible to students.
Collaborators can help manage or edit your list. To add a TA, Designer, or Librarian to your list, select the arrow to expand the Collaborators tab. Enter a name or full BC email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you do not find a name, add the person to your Canvas course as a TA or Designer. Once added to your course, they will appear on the list of collaborators to invite.
To change a person's role from a Collaborator (Can edit list) to an Owner (Can manage list), select Manage collaborators.
Select the button for the collaborator whose permissions you wish to change and select Allow collaborator to manage list to make that person a list Owner. Select the remove name from list button ("x" icon) to delete a Collaborator.
