Library Databases inside Canvas

Jump to solution

Hi All:  I'm an academic librarian at a small community college.  Is there a way to put our database page inside Canvas and do away with the need for a proxy?  If students and faculty log in to Canvas, and it works with our ERP, it seems like this would be enough.  Has anyone put their databases behind the Canvas log-on?  Willing to share what is needed to make this work?

I figured it out and now we use LibGuides which house and organize database and other electronic resources.  All linked in Canvas via LTI.  

It's been life changing!

Hi,  @dadolf ‌, while I don't have an immediate answer for you, I wanted to let you know that I've shared your question with the Librarians and Resources‌ group. You won't need to join that group to see responses as they appear, but if you'd like to join, you can easily do so by clicking on the link to the group and selecting Join Group from the Actions dropdown at the upper right of the page.
