Follow Up Friday: Library Resources for Teaching & Upcoming Events

Are you using the expertise available to you at Cooper Library? Do you know your content librarian? What is a Course Resource List? Read below for the details straight from your friendly neighborhood librarians:

COURSE RESOURCE LISTSA stack of library books with a Clemson University Library stamp on each of them.

“It’s a tool designed to incorporate outside resources with an instructor’s Canvas courses. Instructors can build reading lists that include library materials, videos, web resources, and more. Students can find course materials seamlessly through Canvas without the need for third-party apps or extra navigation. Benefits include:

  • Ability to identify and link directly to resources; no need to deal with link maintenance
  • Materials can be saved and reused in other courses or future semesters
  • Materials are added to Canvas so students have easy access
  • Avoiding copyright issues by directly linking to electronic resources”

Librarian Rodger Bishop II hosted a Quick Hits workshop all about setting up and using a Course Resource List in Canvas – check out the recording at our Ensemble Portal!


“You can reach out to our subject librarians for in-depth reference questions or for assistance with research. They are also available to provide an orientation or teach specific resources for any class.”

Find your subject librarian at their website.


Clemson librarians “have put together the following guides to get you to the best databases, journals, electronic journals, and books for your specific subject. Use the search box if you are looking for something in specific, or browse through our guides by subject area.”

Find the details at the Course Guide Page.
