Instructors can provide durable links to library catalog entries of books, reserves, CDs, DVDs, and videos from their websites, electronic versions of their syllabus, WebCT courses, and emails. Durable links also allow instructors to link directly to full text articles located in one of CCSF Library’s full text databases. This webpage provides brief instructions for creating durable links.
Why use durable links?
Instructors can use durable links to provide students direct access to course readings by creating electronic readings lists via their syllabus, WebCT course, emails, etc. When accessing articles from online databases off campus, students MUST enter their CCSF barcode number when prompted.
