Embedding LibChat in a course, page or module?

I (we) are new to canvas and are setting up our course room right now. We are using LibChat in our other digital services and are now wondering if we could embed it into canvas too, preferably not globally though. Has anyone else tried this or know how to embed third party widgets in general? I know about the Libguides LTI stuff, but we do not have Libguides at my institution, only Libanswers/LibChat. Any help most welcome!

At K-State we are using LibH3lp. We embed the code using an iframe.

<h4>Ask your questions online</h4>
<div class="libraryh3lp" style="margin-top: 12px;" data-lh3-jid="ksulcanvas@chat.libraryh3lp.com"><iframe title="Ask a Librarian Chat Widget" src="https://libraryh3lp.com/chat/ksulcanvas@chat.libraryh3lp.com?identity=Hale+&amp;skin=26842" width="99%" height="232px"></iframe></div>

Our chat widget dynamically sizes so it will fit in question prompts or in page columns.
