Create Links to Library Resources

Faculty and students may use this guide to create persistent links to library resources to embed in Canvas. Select a database tab to find out where to copy the correct link to post in Canvas.

Persistent links are not always found in your browser window. Do not copy and paste the URL from the browser window of the selected resource unless directed to do so.

*NOTE to FACULTY: Be sure to check your library resource links in Canvas. Licensing of digital scholarly content can vary. Ebook and streaming video titles are especially affected by copyright restrictions and could be removed from our subscribed resources without the consent of the Library. Check links before courses begin to ensure access or to replace the resource. Contact the Library with any questions at librarycontact@wilmu.edu
