The Library has many online services that you can share directly with your students. To share these services all you need do is copy and paste the link into Canvas (or your syllabus or anywhere else you communicate with students). Resources to share with your students include:
The IRIS 4-2 Information Literacy Tutorials are a couple dozen quick tutorial modules organized into four sections. Since IRIS is modular, it can be sliced into smaller assignments as desired. Right click on any menu item if you want the URL for that section. Below are the URLs for the four main modules.
Please note that IRIS has several quiz components, each of which can send the results to a faculty member. This way you can ensure that students have completed them and attained a certain level of mastery over the content. One is based on all of the IRIS content, there are quizzes for the "Explore" and "Find" modules, and there is a quiz on plagiarism alone. The results can confirm your class knows what plagiarism is. (Contact us if you wish to be added to the IRIS faculty list.)

Subject guides include a variety of carefully prepared and curated content guides on a variety of disciplines and subjects including Health Sciences, History, and Statistics & Government Documents. The guides include links to specific library databases, books available in our collection, and useful websites for research.
Linking to articles in library databases
You can share content with your students, including individual articles and searches from our databases, using links that will work whether on or off campus; here's how:
Find a permalink for the content - This is a special URL that the database vendors provide. Each vendor will present them differently.
Convert the permalink - Some databases (such as Films on Demand) already provide the converted permalink, however others will need a proxy prefix to be added to their permalink for off-campus access. Use the tool below (and bookmark this page) to make it easy to "proxify" the permalink
