Resources for Faculty: Linking Full Text Articles in Canvas

Discover and explore Dugan Library resources!


The videos and text on this page are designed to help you create links to journals, individual articles, videos and other content available in subscription databases through Dugan Library.

Remember, you also have the option of downloading the article file, such as pdf documents, and posting them in a Canvas course for students to download.  As long as it is an article that is currently available in the database, you have permission to do this.  If you have accessed the article through some other source, it is not advisable to post unless you have permission from the copyright holder.

  • Important note: Copying and pasting the URL from the address bar in your browser will not work to connect anyone to the databases and articles.  You must use the link features provided in the database to be able to share.  The URL/address is unique to your session and can't be duplicated to a new session.
  • The videos have no vocal narration.
