How Do I Link to e-Resources?

Other e-Resources

Step 1 --

Find the e-Resource in the Library Catalogue

Step 2 --

When you find the e-Recource, locate the "Access this Resource" link, right-click it and select "Copy Link Location" or "Copy Shortcut"

Step 3 --

Paste the copied URL into your Avenue2Learn or course Web page (Note: the URL in the record is fully-formatted for on- and off-campus access). Do not click the link to the e-Resource and then copy the URL in your browser's address bar!

Step 4 --

Please test all URLs that you include in Avenue or course Web pages to ensure that they resolve properly, both on-campus and off-.

Example

  1. Search for the title Cognet
  2. Right-click the "Link to Online Resource" link
  3. Copy the URL (in this case the URL is http://libaccess.mcmaster.ca/login?url=http://cognet.mit.edu/library/) and paste it into Avenue/your course Web page.
  4. Once you have made the page "live", test the URL!
