Linking to Library Resources

Supplement your course materials with articles, eBook chapters, or videos from library databases; it can help provide textbook alternatives and demonstrate the value of the library to your students. It’s also an easy way to introduce your students to research databases in your discipline.

Linking to Articles, eBooks & Videos in Library Databases

Many library databases generate “permalinks” to manage access to their subscription resources. Using the wrong URLs may cause issues for students accessing your course resources. See below for information on linking to resources from specific library databases,

Add those links to Canvas modules using the External URL and load in a new tab options for the best results.
