Information for Faculty

This guide provides information on services that the library provides specifically for LLU faculty members.

This section provides information on how to link to full text resources in your syllabus or canvas course shell. This is a how-to page that includes instructions for linking to full text of articles, e-books, and e-journals for your course.

Journal linking features enable you to link directly to the electronic version of a particular journal and its full text articles. This page includes information regarding building stable Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) that enable connecting to the electronic full text version of articles in your online syllabus or course within the learning management system. If you have questions or comments, please contact your liaison librarian.

Please note the following information about linking:

  • In many cases, a single typo will invalidate your URL.
  • Recommended browsers are Firefox or Google Chrome.

Why can’t I just bookmark the page?

We recommend that you link to a specific journal or article, rather than bookmarking the page for the following reasons:

  • Users go directly into the journal of their choice, with the minimum number of clicks.
  • Linking provides short, easy-to-use, and stable URLs – minimizing dead-ends.
  • Copyright & licensing agreements.
  • Subscription and session IDs.
