Instructors can also link to the library's electronic resources in their Nexus course pages. This will place important readings directly in context with the course.
For assistance with the Nexus Learning Management System, contact the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT).
Access to most electronic resources must be proxy authenticated through the library's proxy server (EZProxy). This proxy rewrites URLs to give authorized users access to the library's subscriptions. To enable off-campus access, the URL must be prepended with the following address:
So, for example, the URL of an article in Jstor becomes:
On-campus access will remain uninterrupted, but students and faculty accessing from off-campus will be prompted to enter their Campus (WebAdvisor) username and password.
Note: some databases will offer features to create Durable, Persistent, or Perma-Links.
You can create direct, durable links to the library's electronic resources in the Course Builder section of Nexus.
Get the link from the database. The example below is from Proquest.
Once added to the course content, the article will appear directly in the content area of your Nexus course site. Note: Some databases will require you to link to a bibliographic record. Once there, the students will need to choose the Full-text option.
