Curriculum Builder: an LMS plugin hosted by EBSCO


EBSCO Discovery Service brings you an easy way to create and manage course reading lists right from your Learning Management System (LMS) with the Curriculum Builder LMS plugin. Highly cost-effective, the Curriculum Builder enables you to bring the world of quality databases, ebooks, and other digital resources from the library’s discovery system easily and directly into the online learning environment.

Here’s how it works:

  • Search your library’s content from within the LMS
  • Simply click “Add to Reading List” and your selections are saved
  • Annotate reading list items and copy other reading lists created at your institution.*
  • Curriculum Builder also gives you the ability to review statistics, including which of your institutions’ courses and educators are using the Curriculum Builder and how many readings are included.

    The Curriculum Builder plugin is entirely hosted by EBSCO and includes implementation and integration with EDS.

    * Please note that the full text to which an institution subscribes is sometimes subject to unique conditions for use as course materials, and the guidelines for each must be followed, as appropriate.
