E-Resources for D2L
Create Links to Journal Articles
We will assist you in providing direct links to database articles for your lessons.
Alternatively, you can create links to articles yourself. To do so, you must:
- Find and copy the permanent link to the article from the database
- Add the remote access prefix to enable students to access the article from off-campus (if not already present)
- Use the "Create a File" option in D2L, not the "Create a Link" option. In the new File, use the Text Editor to create a link with the permalink - ensure you choose "Open in a New Window."
