Reading Lists for Canvas


UCC Reading Lists for Canvas is a service provided by UCC Library, using Keylinks software, that will give students direct access to course readings via Canvas.

Reading Lists For Canvas provides easy access to your reading lists for each module. Your reading list can show the location and availability of print books in the library and direct links to digitised chapters, e-books, and journal articles. 

Other resources such as videos and links to databases and websites can also be included. Lists can be arranged by category, such as 'essential' and 'recommended', divided into topics or arranged by date.

Submission Form

Digitized Course Readings

When you want to place a scanned extract from a book or a print journal on your Reading List for Canvas, for use by students studying a particular module, just complete the form below and submit it to the library. (Please note you must have registered your class details first) Details will be checked against the DCS for copyright compliance. We will then scan the item and upload it to the DCS. This will generate a link which we will send to you to place on Canvas. The link can only be used for the course for which it was requested. If you want to use the same  article for another course just let us know. The university must own a copy of anything to be scanned. If we don't currently own a copy we may buy a copy or buy a copyright fee paid scan of the article from the British Library.
