Faculty Tools: Library Links in Blackboard

Online Resources for Citation and Journal Analysis and for Identifying Publishing Opportunities and Funding

Creating Links to Library Online Materials for Class Readings


It is fairly easy to create a stable link (often called a PURL, or Persistent URL) for articles, entries, and chapters found in Sawyer Library databases.

To assist in this process, we have two guides just on this topic:


Persistent URLs (PURLs) -- How to Create Them

details the process of creating the links.  Tabbed pages provide specific instructions for each of the major databases platforms.


Persistent URLs in Blackboard

provides instructions for how to "build" this "content" into your Blackboard pages.
