Creating Links to Library Resources
This guide provides instructions on how to provide access to library resources within Learning Management Systems like Moodle, Edlinked and MyWeb. Many library database agreements do not permit full-text articles (pdfs) to be stored in the LMS itself. However, seamless access is possible through the use of persistent links to the full-text articles.
