Information for Faculty: Linking to Articles

Learn how to incorporate Library resources and research strategies into your courses.

Linking Articles

Sometimes it is helpful to link articles into Moodle for your students. We have broken down the information for you so you know how to do this in EBSCOhost and Opposing Viewpoints.

If you want to link to an article that we do not have full text access to, please contact your Library liaison.

If you need additional help, please contact your Library liaison. 

Direct Linking to Specific Databases and the Library Catalog

To link to a specific database, you must right click on the database name, and select "Copy Link Location". This will provide the proper URL to give to your students.

To link to something in the catalog, copy the URL once you found the results you are looking for.

Direct Linking to EBSCOhost

To link to a specific article in EBSCOhost, on the article's detailed record page, look to the right side "tools" menu and click on the "permalink" option. This link will provide a direct URL to the article selected.
