LINKING TO LIBRARY RESOURCES //

 

Most of the Libraries' online resources allow you to create permanent links to specific articles, images, ebooks, videos, songs, etc. You may email these links to your students or post them on Digication or any other course website.

Off-campus access
Access to the Libraries' subscription resources is limited to members of the UArts community. If you are using the online resources from within the University's campus, you should be able to access them directly. However if you are off campus, you will be asked to log in to a University Libraries authentication page with your UArts login and password.

For direct links into the Libraries' online resources to work for everyone, both on and off campus, they must be configured to work with the Libraries' "proxy" system. Most, but not all, databases create off-campus friendly links.

Will my link work off-campus?
If the URL (after the "http://") begins with "0-" then yes, your link should work. If the link does not, use the tool below to convert it to an off-campus friendly form.

1. Paste a URL in this box. ("http" and all)
    
2. Click this button.
3. Copy the new URL from this box and use it to access your resource.
    

Linking from specific resources (click images for full view)

The Library Catalog
Use the "Permanent URL for this record" link to access any specific record in the library catalog. (This is a public website, not a subscription resource, so this link doesn't need any proxy info.)
ARTstor
Click on one or more images to highlight them. Select "Generate image URL" under the "Share" menu.
ebrary
When viewing an ebook, the URL in your browser's address bar will always link directly to this title. Or use the link contained in the ebook's UArts library catalog record.
EBSCOhost
Click the "Permalink" button to access any to get a permanent URL.
Music Online (Alexander Street Press)
When viewing an album or track, click the "Link" icon. Sign in to create playlists; look for the same "Link" icon to share them.
Oxford Art Online & Oxford Music Online
When viewing an article, use the Email feature to send a permanent link to yourself. This link will not work off-campus; use the tool above to convert it.
