Canvas: Link to Articles and Online Resources

This guide will help faculty find resources about the Canvas migration and how to link to library content within their Canvas course.

Linking to Articles and Online Resources in Canvas

In order to link directly to an article/item in our database you must first find the permalink (an URL address that remains persistent, also known as a "stable URL").  Locating a permalink depends on the database in which it is located.  First, determine the database vendor by using the chart located in the second tab.  Then click the corresponding vendor tab for step by step instructions on where the permalink is located within that particular database.
