In support of our ongoing commitment to improving and enhancing the CanLit Guides, we are excited to announce some major updates to the website.
Many of these changes derive from the first CanLit Guides Chapter Workshop (May 2016), where Canadian literature scholars converged for two days of chapter writing, peer editing, and discussion about the future of CLG. The participants provided many thoughtful and attentive remarks about the website, for which we are extremely grateful. Based on their feedback, we have added new web features and an updated look and feel, as well as incorporated responsive design for desktop, tablet, and mobile access.
One important change is that instructors no longer have to create accounts and login to create curated guides. Instead, any user can add chapters to a reading list, which will be sent to their email. The list can be added to syllabi or redistributed as many times as needed, to students, other instructors, and more. For more information, see the “How to Use” guides on the CLG homepage.
Other features include:
- An updated homepage that emphasizes our range of chapter categories;
- Print or save the pages as PDF for offline use;
- A dynamic “All Chapters” page for quick and easy reading list selections;
- Filter and view chapters by category or by theme;
- And so much more!
We welcome your feedback and suggestions on the new website, especially if you notice any broken links or functionality. Don’t forget to update your bookmarks, and we hope you enjoy the improvements!
