You can request a librarian be enrolled into your Canvas course. The custom Librarian role provides a way for instructors to give a librarian access to their course to provide research support.
By creating a discussion board, librarians can interact with students to answer research related questions or moderate a discussion. Work with the librarian to determine the best time frame for embedding a discussion in your course.
