Chiming in a little later here thanks to 'digest' mode :)

Similar to what Gary described, here at James Madison University we use Canvas and have included a link to "JMU Libraries" in the left-hand column navigation for all courses,. Our link appears at the bottom by the default, although faculty can move it up if they want. The link uses the LTI protocol to call a small web app (written in .NET, hosted on our library web server) which receives the incoming Canvas parameters (including course subject code) and directs the user to the appropriate LibGuide for the subject based on a mapping config file. Similar to what Gary described, we used to also map to individual courses then fall back to subject, then fall back to the library main page, but maintaining the course-specific linkages seemed too laborious and possibly not even the best scenario, because Subject LibGuides make their sub-course-guides pretty clear so it seemed like good advertising to have the link go to the subject rather than course level. 

In Spring semester 2016, the link had more than about 16,000 uses, and 8,800 unique users (unique user accounts), including 1,270 unique users who clicked the link at least three times during the semester. For context, JMU's current enrollment is 21,227. 

Between 1/9 and 1/17 2017, there were 1,662 uses, 1,349 users, from 709 courses, indicating it's continuing to be used!  I don't have a current count of active courses but I think it's in the ballpark of 2,000. I could see a mini study being useful that fills in the gaps so this kind of data is more interpretable!

We had also piloted a homegrown tool "Resource Integrator" similar to EBSCO's Curriculum Builder (allows for creation of annotated bibliographies / reading lists with durable links within LMS) but it didn't seem used as implemented.  More research is needed about the utility of LMS features requiring greater faculty effort :)

  7. Looking for libraries present in their campus' LMS

My colleague Sharon Shafer and I just had a minute to do some analysis. 
Over the past year, 536 courses had at least one student click the link 
to the guide. The links were clicked a total of 2955 times. In 62 
courses, the link was clicked at least 10 times.

These number come from our web site analytics. We would need to get 
metrics from the CCLE to determine click-through rate.

Clearly most students are not looking at the guides, but some course 
guides are definitely being used. Sharon plans to work with Librarians 
to develop KPIs and measure changes over the next year.

Hope that helps.
