Simply follow the three steps to link journal articles in the library's full-text databases directly into your website, Powerpoint presentation, email, or Blackboard.
1. Find the persistent URL
To point your students directly to an article in database, you CANNOT simply copy and paste the URL from your browser while you are viewing an article. This URL is rarely stable. You should always look for the persistent URLs (a.k.a. stable URLs, permanent URLS, or durable URLs) provided by the database. Listed below are directions for linking articles from major databases.
2. Check for the Off-Campus Access Prefix ( http://libproxy.canton.edu/login?url=)
Many databases, such as EBSCOhost, automatically add the proxy prefix (http://libproxy.canton.edu/login?url=) in their persistent URLs. If you do not see the proxy information, you need to manually add it.
3. Always test your link before making it available to students!
Linking to Ebooks
You can link an ebook in Ebrary directly into your website, Powerpoint presentation, email, or Blackboard.
Linking to an entire book
Linking to a chapter or a page of an ebook (*Please note that the URL in your browsing window does not change as you read through the book, e.g. if you are reading on page 14 of a text and want a link to that page, you cannot simply copy the URL you see as you read. If you want a link to a page or chapter, you must follow the below steps.)
