D2L Guides

Adding Articles to D2L

Copyright:  The license agreements for our databases and e-resources do not permit the text or pdf versions of articles to be copied and uploaded into learning management software or other webpages but “persistent links” can be used in D2L to provide students with access to the articles within the databases and e-resources. After clicking on a persistent link in D2L, students will be prompted to log in as a valid Sault College user and they will receive direct access to the article you’ve selected.

Persistent Links:  The address that appears in your browser when you are viewing an article in a database or e-resource is unique to your logged in session – do not copy and paste this URL into D2L. A persistent link is an article-specific URL that is provided by the database or e-resource. It is stable and it won’t change over time. Look for sharing options and features such as permalinks, document URLs, and digital object identifiers – these URLs are the persistent links that you can copy and paste into D2L. For remote access to the article, add http://ra.ocls.ca/ra/login.aspx?inst=sault&url= to the beginning of the persistent link if the link does not already begin with http://ra.ocls.... or has "eztest.ocls.ca" showing.
