Copy a Permanent Link

When you find an article, ebook, or streaming video in a library database, don't copy the URL from your web browser -- this will break.

Always look for a permanent link to copy. Look for permalink, bookmark, document URL, or share. Copy as paste these links into your Canvas course.
