Searching Library Resources Directly from Canvas

Guest post by Dr. Mark McCallon

You can now embed an  EBSCO Search Box into your Canvas wiki and assignment pages.  Just change the edit mode to “HTML Editor” and paste the following code:

<iframe src=”https://widgets.ebscohost.com/prod/customerspecific/s8479690/search2.html” width=”650px” height=”240px” style=”border:none”></iframe>

The search box contains many of the features of our library searches so your students are easily able to type in their search terms for accessing articles, books, videos, and other resources.

This video explains how to add the search box to the page and its functionality.
