When off-campus, links to subscription electronic resources will send you to an EZproxy authentication site. Use your Liberty University login and password at that point and you will be passed on to the electronic resource. Or—log-in to EZproxyat the beginning of your search. Then you will have access to all databases.
Connecting Students to Articles
Provide persistent links
Within Blackboard, provide students with persistent links (also called permalinks) to the articles you want them to read.
Only by using persistent links will students be able to access articles both on and off campus.
It is important that the link has a proxying prefix for off-campus students. Just because a link works properly on-campus does not mean it will work properly for off-campus students.
Downloading PDF copies of articles from Liberty’s library subscription databases and then uploading them to Blackboard for your students usually violates copyright law and our vendor license agreements.
Even for articles you wrote, making just one copy of PDF's doesn't allow us to track numerous individual student article downloads to show that expensive databases are being used and thus should be retained.
Even if an article is available on the web, provide a link and not a copy. If the copyright status of the web article is questionable, link to our databases instead.
Selection of Materials to be Requested for the Library Collection
The goal of the Liberty University Library is to provide the Liberty University community with a rich and varied collection of materials.
For electronic books, our license agreements sometimes only allow one user at a time. If you would like to require an electronic book for course use, click Using Ebooks for Course Content for more details.
