How can I actually use Library content in a Course?

I’ve created a simple Library with content about how to set up labs. I created 2 Text Components within that Library to hold the instructions. I want to now reference those two Text Components in multiple Courses. How can I do this? I can’t actually see any way to do that, and it doesn’t say anything about using the content in a class here, only creating it and sharing it: 8.5.

Oh wow…just found this…

Are you telling me the point of Libraries is not to share common material between classes, but only to share common quiz questions? So basically if I want to use this for inter-class common material, I need to create Libraries with one piece of content per Library and then select a “randomized” content block which is picking from 1 of 1 pieces of content?

Is there some better way to share materials between classes and between instructors? This will kind of work, but it’s also kind of janky!
