Embedding Research Guides at Point of Need using LibGuides LTI

In Fall 2016, working with the UITS Canvas team, IU Bloomington and IUPUI libraries launched LibGuides LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability). This tool, available for LibGuides CMS subscribers, allows librarians to integrate research guides into Canvas by adding metadata to the LibGuide itself. That’s correct: librarians no longer have to be added to a Canvas course site to embed a research guide! The goals of the project were to better integrate library resources within the learning management system; increase discoverability of library resources; create a more seamless user experience; and adopt a more unified, systematic approach to meeting information needs. Since the integration, we’ve been assessing how the embedded guides are being used by faculty and students.
