How do I create Canvas links to library streaming video, ebooks, and articles that work from off-campus?

How do I create links to journal articles, streaming videos, and ebooks that will work off-campus?

Your Canvas links to journal articles, ebooks, and streaming videos need to include UMD library authentication in the URL for them to be accessible off-campus (students will be prompted to login with their UM-Dearborn uniquename and their Kerberos password - see Online Library Access page for more info).

Go to the Off-Campus Link Tool page on the library website and use the URL Converter to add UM-Dearborn library authentication to your links:

  1. Search the web page of the journal article, video, or e-book for a stable link
  2. If you can't find a stable link, copy the URL in your browser's address bar
  3. Paste the stable link in the URL Converter Tool and click Convert link
