To begin, log into canvas at https://canvas.ucdavis.edu/
Then, access your courses from the side bar and choose the course you want to access:
Next, choose “reading list” to access your classes’ course reserves material.
Your classes’ reading list can have 2 types of citations: physical and electronic. Both function differently, but are accessed the same. To view the details of a citation, click it:
The citation details will display. This is a physical item, so some of the information is bibliographic data and availability. Physical items can be checked out from the library listed in the “Links & Availability” section.
While an electronic citation can have some of the same information attached as a physical citation, there are some differences. Bibliographic information will generally be more limited. The “Links & Availability” section has hyperlinks which you can use to access the material. In this example, we can see access is restricted to UCD IP addresses, so we’ll need to make sure to access the link from on campus, or log into VPN (Pulse Secure) before accessing the material.
In addition to viewing citation details, you can mark an item as read from the the ellipsis button next to the citation, or by clicking the grey checkmark next to the citation. Doing so will change the checkmark to green as a visual cue that you have read through the material.
Note that you can unmark an item as read just by clicking the green checkmark.
