How do I add a LibGuide in a Brightspace (D2L) course?


A faculty member or a librarian with instructor permissions can add course or subject specific LibGuides or a link to your library’s LibGuides in a D2L course. This is done using the Quicklink feature in D2L.

In D2L:

  1. Go to Edit Course > Course Builder

  2. Under the Add Content section, choose the “Create a link” icon:

Libguide LTI Integration

If your institution subscribes to Libguides CMS, Libguides can be seamlessly integrated into D2L using the Libguides LTI integration. If you are at an USG institution, Libguides LTI has been setup and may have already been implemented for your institution in D2L. Please submit a support ticket to find out if your institution has implemented Libguides LTI or how to get it setup.
