There are three options for providing links to resources in your Canvas courses. See the boxes below for instructions on each of these options.
Using the Reading Lists app is the best practice way to add links to resources in your course.
Students can access readings from the Reading List, arranged by you according to topics or weekly units. Or you can add links to Reading List items directly into your course material.
You can get reliable permalinks to any resources in LibrarySearch, and add these to your online course materials. These links will take the student to the LibrarySearch record, and they can click through to find the book, article, or other resource.

If a Library subscribed resource does not appear in LibrarySearch, you can still create a link to use in your Canvas modules.
Many databases include a permalink or persistent link for individual records. OpenAthens is an authentication and electronic access management system that provides access to the Library's licensed online resources via Single Sign-On (SSO) technology, both on- and off-campus. It replaces our current authentication system, EZproxy.
Note: the permalink for an individual item is usually not the URL in the browser address bar. Look out for permalink options within the item record.
