Linking to Books

Jump to solution

Can I place a link to our school's online catalog (and our eBooks) on my dashboard and share it with all of my students at once?

Hi @swkerr 

I am assuming that you are the Canvas Admin.

You can use the Redirect LTI to add global menu items that point to external web sites, so if those items are web-based or n a web-server, this is relatively very easy to do. We use this to add links to our Library resources, for example. You can even specify that the links populate at the course-menu level.

That site discusses using the Redirect Tool at the course level, but it works exactly the same at the account level.

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley

I've tried to use the Redirect tool but always get an error that says "There was an error processing your request" in a pink bar at the top.

I'm just doing a simple link to Google to see it it will work. Any ideas?
