We recommend directly linking to Library resources. You can link directly to articles from University Libraries databases from your Canvas site via the permalink for a source.
In order for the link to work for students who are off-campus, remember to include the proxy in the link: http://libproxy.wustl.edu/login?url=XXXX where the XXXX is the stable link that you copied from. Some databases, like those from EBSCO may already include the proxied link, while others from JSTOR will not.
The instructions for creating a permalink for articles in commonly used databases such as EBSCO owned databases and JSTOR, as well as creating a link using a DOI are located on the Linking Directly to Articles and Databases page in this guide. The box for creating proxy links is below.
Contact your subject librarian if you have any questions.
