Linking in Blackboard

In order to link in Blackboard to an article, ebook or video provided in the library’s collection, you must include an Ezproxy prefix before the stable url, so the system recognizes it as a PhilaU resource. 

Copy the stable url for the resource you want to link to in your course. Then add it as a link in Blackboard, but before saving you must add the following prefix to the url: https://ezproxy.philau.edu/login?url=

Then this will prompt for the correct PhilaU login screen for your students.

IMPORTANT: The URL MUST start with
then paste the stable URL immediately following the = symbol.
