Canvas - Integration - EBSCO Library Resources

The EBSCOhost research platform allows students and instructors to easily access reliable scholarly, peer-reviewed information, hosted in a variety of themed databases. EBSCO’s Canvas integration allows users to search EBSCOhost/EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) databases from within Canvas. Instructors and course designers can then easily add selected EBSCO content to their course modules.

The EBSCO Canvas integration is approved for use within the Digital Learning Environment (DLE). Contact your institutional Canvas administrator for more information.


EBSCOhost must be licensed by your institution to be used in Canvas.


This Canvas app must be setup by a Canvas admin and linked to your campus EBSCO system. Once setup in Canvas, instructors can search EBSCO as an external tool and add items to their modules.
