|Blackboard gives you many options for linking to additional research resources
from your course site. These resources can be Journal articles or Databases.
The method you chose depends on the demand for external research, your comfort
level with HTML and Blackboard, and how you want your students to use your
course site. If you have any questions, contact your library liaison. |
For assigned readings, you can
- Link to the Library's Electronic Reserves service
- Link directly to a full-text article
Linking directly to the library E-Reserves
This method involves giving your students instructions on how to use the
Libraries' electronic reserves service and creating a link to the Libraries'
E-reserves service. Instructions for use of the E-reserves service are accessible
The advantages of this method include:
- Expands the variety of resources available
- Compliance with Fair Use guidelines
- All readings in one place (articles, book chapters, unpublished material)
- Place a link (http://eres.lib.depaul.edu)
to Electronic Reserves in each assignment or in "External Links."
- Provide students with the e-reserves password for your course.
Linking directly to full text article
This method provides direct access to articles by students. The reference
librarian can help instructors identify full-text articles with stable
URL links. See the library's website for How
to Link to Full-Text Articles.
Giving the Students more freedom...
