Yes. Materials posted in Canvas must be comparable to what would be shared in a live, in-person classroom (like a book chapter, poem, essay, or photograph). 

You can:

  • Scan of a small portion of a physical item in SMU Libraries or of your own legally purchased item (for example, 10-15% of the work).
  • Link to Library Search or directly to online materials with a permalink.
  • Make a purchase request for materials we do not own. SMU Libraries will purchase electronic copies of books for unlimited users when possible.

If none of these options work, you may contact the SMU Bookstore to request a course pack, request permissions from the publisher, or get Copyright Clearance.
