You can embed links to articles and chapters in your course site on Canvas.

To make sure the students don't hit a paywall for the content, use a "permalink" to the content. That is a link that uses the library proxy - if the student is off campus the link will help them authenticate by prompting them to log on to TXST resources.

You can find permalinks on the library website. Find the article using Start Your Research or a direct database search, then click on the link icon. That's the permalink.

You may be able to claim fair use for uploading articles and chapters to your course site (even if we don't subscribe to the content), but make sure the versions you upload are accessible.

If you do upload pdfs, make sure they are readable by screen readers. If you download the content from library subscriptions, the pdfs should be accessible. If you make a photocopy from a print resource - it probably will not be accessible.
