If you would like to add links to electronic resources available through LSU Libraries in Moodle, etc., there are several options.
When adding links to resources, accessibility best practices recommend embedding links within descriptive text, rather than pasting a plain URL (i.e. highlight the book title to which you are linking and insert the link). In many applications, this embedding shortcut is control and K (command and K on a Mac).
From the Library Catalog, there are two options for linking to resources. Once you find the electronic resource you wish to share, select one of the two linking options.
To the right of title and other resource information is a link labelled Permanent Link. Click this link, then copy the link address in the pop-up box and paste the link wherever you wish to add it.
The Permanent Link option leads to the Library Catalog record for the resource from which you will be able to then use the electronic access links to navigate to the resource.
Right click the hyperlink in the resource information area labelled Electronic Access, then select the Copy link address option and paste the link wherever you wish to add it.
This option leads directly to the resource with the appropriate proxy prompt if you are not already signed in.
From LSU Vet Med Electronic Resources, there is only one option for linking to resources. Once you find the electronic resource you wish to share, right click on the hyperlink below the line labelled Full Text Access. Select the Copy link address option and paste the link wherever you wish to add it.
We have compiled a spreadsheet of the permanent reserve titles that are currently available electronically through LSU Libraries in order to make accessing these eBooks as seamless as possible; we have included permalinks for all of the titles available electronically.
Please note that unlimited user access to eBooks is purchased when possible, but sometimes only a 1 or 3 concurrent users option is available for purchase, so you may have to wait for a library resource if it is currently in use.
For immediate access to the eBooks, click the permalink.
