Creating Links to Articles and Database Content

You can add links to specific articles from the Library databases in your Blackboard course so all your students can read the same resource. You can also provide links to videos from Swank, Kanopy, and Films On Demand, The key to creating this link is using the permanent link or permalink to the specific record and making sure the EZProxy prefix for the NCCC Library is appended to the front of the permalink.

If the proxy server prefix is not part of the permalink, add it. The prefix is: https://niagaracc.idm.oclc.org/login?url=
