Add Course Readings to bCourses: Linking to Library Resources

This guide is for instructors who would like to add library resources to their bCourses sites.

Linking to Library Resources

The Library recommends linking to public domain, library-licensed, or open-access online content rather than uploading copyrighted materials to your course site when possible. If you wish to upload copyrighted materials, consult the companion guide Course Instructor Guide to Copyright & bCourses for best practices.

If you cannot find a particular resource, contact a librarian for assistance.  

To link to library-licensed content:

  1. Locate the library resource online 
  2. Copy the permanent link for the resource
  3. Use the Libproxifier to prepend the proxy prefix, which ensures off-campus access  
  4. Add the proxified link to your syllabus or bCourses
