What can an embedded librarian do in Canvas?

The Librarian role in Canvas can create resource pages, tutorials, and quizzes for your class. This means that a librarian can collaborate with you to create the best resources to assist your students with using the library for their research.  Librarians will not be able to see class discussions or grades, so your students' privacy is not compromised.
