The library's homepage, which is linked from the classroom, the students' campus portal and Faculty Connect, is a secure site.   The links in those three locations will work -- but if you attempt to provide the direct url in a lesson or announcement, students will typically see a login page that they cannot access

So, if you want to direct students to a page on the library's secure site, be sure to provide step-by-step instructions that send them through the library link in their classroomSee an example here.

But, the library does have many public resources at:

URLs from both of these sites will work from Sakai lessons, assignments, announcements, emails, etc.  Feel free to share them with students!

Links to proxied (subscription) resources -- those with "ezproxy" in the url -- will also work from anywhere.  It's a good idea to remind students that they may need to log in with their student id and password with these.  See also:  How can I create a permalink to an article or book from our databases?
