Faculty & Staff: Linking to Library Resources

This guide demonstrates how to make stable links to library resources for distribution to your classes.

Films on Demand

What do you want to do?

These links can be used anywhere, including in your syllabus, in emails with students, or in Blackboard using the Create Web Link tool! See how to use Blackboard's Create Web link tool.

Link to the Database

If you'd like to link to the entire database so your students can search in it themselves, use the following link:

To share this link, it's as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Right click on the link above to access your computer's drop-down menu options.
  2. Select "Copy Link Location" from the drop-down menu.
  3. Paste the link where your students can access it.

Link to a Video

If you'd like your students to watch an entire video, do not use the URL in your browser's address bar.

Instead, copy the Record URL located under the video (see the red box in the image below).
