This guide is intended to give faculty step by step instructions to utilize many of the library's electronic resources in their Blackboard Classrooms. The accompanying text and images will show you how to generate and embed direct links (persistent links) to articles and ebooks. Unfortunately, all of the electronic resources do not use a standard process, so instructions have grouped by company such as EBSCO, Gale Cengage, Ebrary, etc. Click on the tab for the resource you are interested in.
Even if you teach all your classes face-to-face at an AWC instruction site, please follow these directions for creating persistent links. All on-campus students leave each day and go home, at which time they access us from a distance and will need to login to get at any library content you have linked to from your Blackboard space.
Note: there is a tab 'Link Converter' on this guide, and under each database vendor tab, which you can use to access the converter tool rather than having to go back to the Link Converter page on the library's web page. If on the library's web page, find the Link Converter on the Faculty Resources page.
