Linking to Library Content

Linking to Journal Articles  |  Finding Permalinks in the Databases  |  Linking to eBooks

The library's electronic resources support the curriculum and are available to all students and faculty. Many faculty require particular eBooks and journal articles in their courses. These online resources may be easily and directly linked on faculty webpages, sent attached in emails or linked within a Canvas course—provided copyright rules are followed. The procedure is explained below. Each database in the list below contains a direct link for your convenience. These links will require users to log in to view the material.


Linking to Journal Articles Found in the Library Databases

Use the following text box to generate a persistent link to database content. Paste your permalink into the text box and click Create Link (see the next section for details on how to find permalinks in the library databases). The link will generate below the box. Copy the link for future reference or click it to access the content.

Notes:

  • EBSCO, Films on Demand, and Gale generate persistent links already.
  • You will need to log in when you click the link. Your Borrower ID is your 8 digit SF ID number. Your PIN/Password is the last 4 digits of your SF ID number.
