Creating Links for Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
Question: How do I set up links to articles or other resources such as items from the library databases - for D2L, course web pages, or other locations - so that they work from off-campus?
Example: You want to link to an article in the library database Academic Search Premier with the permanent link: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=aph&AN=9031038&site=ehost-live&scope=site
Answer: You need to format the links in a way that redirects them through the library proxy server and prompts students to log-in with their last name and "A" number.. If you don't do this, the links will work from on-campus, but not from off-campus.
