Adding Links to Library Resources In Moodle

You can link to library resources in Moodle by adding a URL Resource to a Course Page or adding a hyperlink to text on a page. Below you will see examples of the best ways to link to our content, so your links won't break.

Use Permalinks

Permalinks will ensure that our students will be able to access the library resources you share with them. Learn more about what permalinks are and how to find them for different databases.

Streaming and Digitizing Media

2020 Digitization of Media Policy

Because of the need to make resources available to students who are participating in classes remotely, the Library has developed a procedure for making film and other media available in a online format. 

Faculty may request video resources in an online format. The Library will seek to purchase the resource in a streaming format. If streaming is unavailable, the Library will digitize a library-owned physical  copy or purchase a new physical copy to digitize. The  digitized copy will be uploaded to Box with a Word copy of our copyright statement/usage restrictions to this folder. The folder and its contents will only be available for individual classes; will be password protected; and the content will be non-downloadable. The Box folder will expire on at the end of the semester, 2020.

This is a temporary policy. Newly purchased videos will be cataloged and the physical copy of the film will be available after the fall semester.
