Linking to Licensed Resources in D2L

 

Linking to Licensed Resources

To link to one of the library's licensed resources, you will need to identify the durable or permanent URL or link. In most cases, you should not copy the URL from your browser's address bar; the URL shown in your address bar is usually a temporary link that will not work after your browser session has ended. The permanent or durable link may be found in different locations, depending on the database -- several examples are shown below. If the licensed resource you need is not shown, or you have any questions about how to link to resources, contact UW Oshkosh Libraries online learning librarians at onlinelibrary@uwosh.edu.


In some cases, to make the links accessible to off-campus students, you will need to add our proxy prefix. The tool below will add this prefix for you. This is not an anonymous proxy. All traffic through the proxy requires your NetID. Only library approved URLs are allowed through the proxy and all other URLs are blocked.

Linking from Search@UW

Permalinks to articles, books or media from Search@UW will link the viewer to the item's record in the system. The proxy prefix is not required for Search@UW links.
