This guide assists faculty and staff with resources offered by the Macdonald-Kelce Library.

Including materials in Canvas

Including materials (articles, book chapters, or video) in courseware is not difficult.

  • Linking is copyright safe and more accurately represents usage of a resource.
  • Locate the article, ebook, or video file from the library resources.
  • Create a citation in your preferred format. This is important for attribution, and in case the link breaks.
  • Find the Permalink, Persistent link, or Stable URL. 

Valid permalink URLs should begin with this proxy phrase.

https://esearch.ut.edu/login?url=

A URL might also look like this:

https://fod-infobase-com.esearch.ut.edu/p_ViewVideo.aspx?xtid=241221

Notice the hyphens in the database part at the front and the esearch.ut.edu part in the middle.

(Either method will work for proxy off-campus access.)
