     I'm looking for data on Canvas use by Colleges of Medicine. I was directed to the GIR site: Group on Information Resources (GIR) - Member Center - AAMC  but was unable to find any information on Canvas. Does anyone know specifically which resource on that site contains such information or have another resource they'd be willing to share?
