Linking to books, journals, articles

Start from the Library Search box to search for the resource. After you find the book, chapter, article or paper you need, click on the resource name to see the description. Look for the Permalink button at the bottom of the page, click and copy. Instructors can use the Course Resources button to add the item to a course reading list in Canvas.
