Linking to Articles, E-books, and Streaming Videos

For most library resources, simply cutting and pasting the link from the browser's address bar will not work. You need to confirm if the resource provides a specific link, sometimes referred to as a persistent URL or a permalink.

Visit the Copyright Webpage before adding e-resource links to Brightspace or Coursepacks/Handouts.

Links not working? Get help with resource links or contact Lynette Gallant for more information on copyright.
