"Affordable Instructional Materials" Research Guide
For faculty teaching online courses, please be sure to use links to guide students to their readings rather than attaching pdfs. This will help you ensure that you are following licensing agreements with library vendors. If you need to link media, books, or articles, please see this new research guide that walks you through the steps. Access the "Affordable Instructional Materials" guide here: https://guides.library.uab.edu/support. This guide also provides numerous teaching resources that offer open access books, textbooks, and other educational materials available.
Creating Direct Links (PURLs) to Library Resources
In order for users to access many of the library's resources, it is necessary to create a persistent link (PURL (persistent URL)) that will identify a user as being affiliated with UAB.
A PURL allows you to directly link someone to a subscription based resource like a journal article or online book on or off campus by using our proxy server snippet (http://uab.idm.oclc.org/login?url=). The snippet will authenticate UAB faculty, staff, students so they can access the resource remotely.
