Copying and pasting links directly from the address bar in the library's online resources can often lead to dead pages. Often these links are temporary and won't link back to the original source. The workaround for this is to create a persistent link, also known as a permalink. Once you have a permalink, you can add it to your Canvas course or any other place you use a URL.
If you would like to place a journal, magazine, or newspaper article link in Canvas, use the persistent link option in the database where you found the article.
Each database may have a different way of providing the permalink. In most instances, it will be listed under the "Tools" or "Share" option.
Sometimes you can find a permalink by using the citation generator that is located within the database.
To link to a specific ebook, use the permalink provided by the catalog.
Step 1: Use the library catalog to find your specific title.
Step 2: Click on the link under "Full text availability" to view the ebook
Step 3: When viewing the ebook, click Share Link to Book
