To access and use Reading Lists in your Canvas Courses, you'll need to enable Reading Lists in each course in which you want to display a reading list. You have two options for adding reading lists to Canvas:
1. Log in to Canvas and navigate the course where you would like to use reading list.
2. Select Settings at the bottom of the left sidebar.
3. Select Navigation
4. Scroll all the way down to the end of the list of navigation elements. Find Reading Lists and enable. Make sure to click save after you enable. Scroll down if you do not see the Save button.
Now you will see "Reading Lists" show up in the side navigation for your course.
From here, you can create a new list for this course or associate a list that is already in your reading list account to this course.
Instead or in addition to adding the reading list as a course navigation item, you can insert reading lists in your canvas course modules.
Go to the module where you want to add a link to a reading list. Add an item to the module.
Add an "external tool."
Select Reading Lists from the list of external tools. Rename it if you want and add item.
