Canvas Commons, a learning object repository recently introduced by the learning management system (LMS) Canvas, is a new tool for the trail not only to elevate student learning, but also create new paths for integrating scalable library instruction throughout the curriculum.  In a quest to provide effective and sustainable instruction for our CEP College and Career Success program, the Marydean Martin Library at Nevada State College implemented a "Library Guide for CEP" module through Canvas Commons, which replaced previous one-shot sessions.  With only a couple of clicks, instructors can easily add the module, comprised of a variety of learning objects, directly into their Canvas course.  This presentation demonstrates how integrating library instruction through a LMS can support student learning and trailblaze the way for faculty collaboration at whole new heights.  Strategies, lessons learned, and future directions will be discussed for other libraries who hope to pursue integration within the LMS.
