The Library in Brightspace: Link to Articles

Professors, this guide is meant to show you the different ways in which you can incorporate the library and its services into your Brightspace courses.

Library Resources for Your Brightspace Course

How to Directly Link to an Article (Example from a Gale Database)

1. Find the article you want to link to.

2. Click on the article's title to access the link, and then click on "Get Link" from the options in the upper right corner of the page.

3. Copy and paste this link into your Brightspace course.

How to Directly Link to an Article (Example from an EBSCO Database)

1. Find the article you want to link to in one of our library's databases.

2. Click on "PDF Full Text"

3. Copy and paste the article's permalink into your Brightspace course.

4. Do NOT use the link in the URL bar. It will not work.

PLEASE NOTE

EBSCO permalinks require an extra step due to problems with EBSCO's compatibility with our school's proxy server. 

You must paste the permalink from EBSCO into a URL decoder such as www.urldecoder.org and decode the link. Use the new link in your Brightspace course.
