As an academic, when viewing a Library Reading List in Canvas in 'Student View' you may be shown one of these error messages:

Error message shown in Canvas when using Student View and looking at a Library Reading List.

An image of the Student View screen when viewing the Library Reading List in Canvas.

Please be assured this is normal and the student will be able to see the Library Reading List.

It is due to the way the system looks to authenticate access to the list and the 'Student View' is anonymous which throws up this Unknown user id error.

If there are any other issues with accessing a Library Reading List on Canvas, please contact our reading lists team.
