Posting articles or links to eBooks in D2L
The library subscribes to a variety of databases that encompass images, films, articles, and eBooks that have licensing agreements associated with them. In most cases, the re-use of content outside of the database requires licensing or fair use. In D2L, the best practice is to post the permalink for students to use rather than the PDF.
Look for proxy server information within the link.
Here is an example of a permalink to an article: https://libproxy.uco.edu/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/scholarly-journals/motoric-self-regulation-sled-dogs-pet-acute/docview/2250623252/se-2?accountid=14516
Embedding Films in D2L
The library also subscribes to several film databases that may be embedded in your D2L class. We can also research and purchase streaming licenses to feature films. Contact the library for further information.
