Question: How do I link to a library database for my off-campus students in Canvas?
Answer: Go to the database title list, copy the database text link (right click on the text link and choose copy shortcut) and paste into your Canvas syllabus. The link is already proxied for off-campus students.
Question: What is a persistent link?
Answer: Persistent links (also called durable or permalinks links) are Internet URLs that remain consistent over time. This is not always the same URL found in the browser window of a library database article - those may only work temporarily.
Question: I have an article from a journal. How do I know which database to use to access the journal article?
Answer: Use Journal Finder. Search the journal title (not the article title) and you will get a list of databases that allow full-text access and persistent linking to your article.
