Linking to Database Content in Canvas, Email, and Online: Ebrary

This guide explains how to create "permalinks" to articles, videos, electronic books, and other content within NWACC Library's subscrption databases.

Linking to Books in Ebrary While Off Campus

To link to books in Ebrary while off campus  (for instance, from your home), follow these steps. These instructions only work off campus. Please see the other set of instructions when on campus:

1. Locate the book you want to link to in Ebrary.

2. Highlight the URL from the address bar. (See screenshot.) Copy the complete URL.


3. Paste the URL into Blackboard, an email, on a website, or wherever else you want to share the book.


4. A direct link to the book will appear.



5. When off-campus users click this link, they'll be asked to log in with their My NWACC Connection username and password.



7. After logging in, off-campus users will be taken directly to the book's information page, where they can access the full text of the book. (On-campus users, don't have to authenticate. They'll be immediately taken to the article when they click the link.)

Linking to Books in Ebrary While On Campus

To link to books in Ebrary while on campus, follow these steps. These instructions only work on campus. Please see the other set of instructions when off campus:

1. Locate the book you want to link to in Ebrary.

2. Highlight the URL from the address bar. (See screenshot.) Copy the complete URL.


3. Paste the URL into Blackboard, an email, on a website, or wherever else you want to share the book.


4. Before saving or sending the link, paste the following referring URL in front of the document URL:

http://proxy01.nwacc.edu:2048/login?url=

(Adding this referring URL is necessary because it points to an NWACC authentication server, to verify that the user is authorized to access the database. Not adding this referring URL will make the link inaccessible to off-campus users.)

For instance, the following book URL...

http://site.ebrary.com/lib/nwacc/docDetail.action?docID=10273719

...should be formatted like this before it's shared with other members of the NWACC community:

http://proxy01.nwacc.edu:2048/login?url=http://site.ebrary.com/lib/nwacc/docDetail.action?docID=10273719

After adding the referring URL, save or send the link.

 

5. A direct link to the book will appear.



6. When off-campus users click this link, they'll be asked to log in with their My NWACC Connection username and password.



7. After logging in, off-campus users will be taken directly to the book's information page, where they can access the full text of the book. (On-campus users, don't have to authenticate. They'll be immediately taken to the article when they click the link.)
