University Libraries WorkshopConnecting your students to course resources has never been easier! Ball State University Libraries' Reading Lists application gives students simple access to course reserve materials--full-text database articles, e-books, digitized chapters, streaming music and video, and more. Library staff work behind the scenes to add and activate the resources you select. The best part? The Reading Lists app connects directly with your Canvas course navigation menu. We received a number of positive comments from instructors who utilized Reading Lists in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 to provide resources to students taking on-campus and virtual courses. Join one of our upcoming online sessions for an overview of how Reading Lists can enhance your teaching in Summer 2021 and beyond.
