Affordable Instructional Materials & Linking to Library Resources: Library Books and e-Books

This guide will provide information on how to link to library resources in Canvas, copyright guidelines, and contact information for more help.

Books and e-Books

When you use e-books, remember that in most cases, ONLY ONE PERSON CAN USE THAT BOOK AT A TIME.  Just like with print books, if one person is reading an e-book, another person can't.  If you know that you will need a book to have multiple readers at the same time, please contact your subject librarian.

e-Books

E-books are convenient because the student does not have to be in the library to use it, they can be searched by keyword, and the student needs to print out the pages needed.

You can tell whether a book is an e-book by looking at its location.  e-books will be located at "E-book."

Linking to them is similar to articles

 

Select the link that will lead  you to that e-Book collection. Once you are in the collection, select permalink.

Add the prefix http://ezproxy3.lhl.uab.edu/login?url= to the permalink:

 

And that's your URL: http://ezproxy3.lhl.uab.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=67055&site=ehost-live
