What is a persistent link?
You can embed e-books, online articles, & streaming videos into your online course material using persistent links. Persistent links are links that remain unchanged over time. This allows faculty to provide students with links that will take them directly to selected content, such as to a database or an item within a database. From off-campus, they will be asked to log in with their MEID and password.
Why use persistent links?
Using persistent links in your course is useful in many ways. It is convenient for students to have all of their required readings in one place (can be used in place of Library Reserves), you can create assignments or discussion boards that utilize library e-content, and it is easy for instructors to do themselves!
