Hello! First time poster here, be kind 



I'm a librarian at James Madison University, a large comprehensive university in Virginia. My tech folks tell me it's easy to create new "roles" in Canvas with different permissions settings.  We're thinking of creating a "librarian" and/or "instructional designer" role so teachers feel more comfortable adding librarians or instructional designers to Canvas.  Before we go to this effort, though, we were wondering:

  • Has anyone else who's tried this found the effort beneficial?
  • Are there any "lessons learned" or "best practices" we should consider?
  • What permissions settings did your institution choose?
