Integrating Library Resources into Canvas

Tips

Select the database/provider you are using from the navigation menu. If you do not see an example for the database that you need to use listed here, contact the library for assistance.

Do not copy and paste the URL in your browser's web address bar unless directed to do so in the information presented on this page.

To allow off-campus users to view content, most links will require the UW-Green Bay Libraries proxy server URL as part of the link you send to students. The information for each of the databases/providers explains how to do this.
