Posting copyrighted or licensed resources: When it is necessary to obtain permission to post copyrighted material to your course page, Flaxman Library staff offer to request the permission and to pay reasonable fees from the library budget. Please email the citations only to email@example.com.
Posting Licensed or Copyrighted Resources on SAIC Course Pages
Most of our agreements for licensed resources allow and support direct linking to content within protected course pages. To create a stable link, find the persistent URL, permalink, or document identifier (DOI) for the article, e-book section, or streaming video that you have chosen. For example: http://silf.alexanderstreet.com/View/1827190/
To make the link accessible from off-campus, add our proxy server prefix [ http://proxy.artic.edu/login?url= ] to the front of the URL so that the above example becomes:
A few licensed resources do not allow or do not support stable linking. In these cases you may have to provide a citation or other instructions in Canvas. Please contact the Flaxman Library (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or for help.
