Linking to articles and files

Summary

Copyrighted materials should be distributed with Study.Net. For files you're providing, such as PowerPoint slides or class notes, and for articles that are publicly available, you may want to provide links for easy access.

Linking to articles on the web

Video Demo

To link to a publicly available article on the web:

  1. Copy the web address of the article.
  2. In Canvas, go to the Page or Assignment in which you want the article link to appear.
  3. Follow the steps for creating a hyperlink in the Rich Content Editor, then save your changes.

Not all publications will post their articles on the web in a way that facilitates easy linking. You may be able to find a link to a licensed web-based copy of the article in one of Lippincott Library's databases. For example, many articles in Business Source Premier will have a "persistent link to this article" which can be used for a Canvas link using the steps above. The Lippincott librarians will be happy to help you with article links.

Linking to files you've posted

Adding files to Canvas is easy, and linking to them is even easier.
