When linking articles, beware! You can't copy and paste a URL when viewing an article in a database and have the link work for your students. Database search URLs often have session information that will expire, making the link unusable. You also need to be sure our Proxy string (ezproxy.uky.edu) is included so the link will work from off-campus. This page provides information about how you can provide links to articles you find in EBSCO databases. Unfortunately, not all databases work the same way. If you need help adding links to articles you find elsewhere, please Ask Us. Remember these general tips:
Jstor example: http://ezproxy.uky.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/
DOI example: if the DOI is "10.1126/science.347.6217.11" then the url would be:
Database interfaces may change. If the instructions on this page no longer work, please let us know.
Citations that include links to full text can be copied from the Search Results screen in EBSCOhost databases. These citations can be pasted directly into a Page in Canvas. The links do not include session IDs, and they do include our proxy string. If a citation includes a View Now button instead of a link to the full text, that button will also work to help students find the document in another database or request it via ILL.
