Persistent URLs

  1. 1. Instructors & students, follow these easy steps to posting or submitting an article as part of a Moodle assignment, via email, etc. Wil Peters, Noel Mem. Library, LSUS 2009
  2. 2. Only cutting & pasting a url, not pages of html  article No bother with attaching a pdf to an email, or  uploading article to a Moodle folder
  3. 3. Off-campus users have to authenticate, so the URL for  the article has to have this added piece that passes the patron through our proxy server for authentication: http://ezproxy.lsus.edu:2048/login?url=  For example, you want to create a link to the article  quot;Do Volunteers Deserve the Board's Attention?,quot; which is available from Ebsco's Business Source Complete, then the persistent URL for this article is: http://ezproxy.lsus.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.e bscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=1 9072309&site=ehost-live **(Ebsco already includes the proxy string, but other databases may not. In that case, be sure to append it at beginning of string)
