How do I enable the reading list tool in Canvas?


Instructors first must add the Reading List tool to a Canvas site. To add the tool:

  1. Log in to Canvas and enter the course for which you wish to create a reading list.
  2. On the left-hand menu click the Settings link.
  3. Click the Navigation tab at the top and scroll down to the list of disabled pages or search the page for Reading List.
  4. Click and drag the Reading List tool to the course navigation or click on the menu for Reading List and click +Enable.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save. 
  6. Reading List should now appear in the navigation menu.

For more information, see the Faculty Guide to Placing Materials on Reserve, the Canvas Reading List guide, or watch a short how-to video on how to embed a reading list into your Canvas course.

You can email with any questions.
