For online resources such as electronic journal articles or eBooks available via the Library website it is best practice to include a direct link to the resource in your Learnline unit.
If your resource is in hard copy or not available via CDU Library go to the eReadings and eSpace tab for further information.
It is important to create a user-friendly link, (called a permalink) using the EZproxy Generator which ensures that the link opens in a new window in Learnline and is accessible for all external students. Read more about permalinks
Many journals now also provide a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). This will take you directly to the article, as does a permalink.
If the article is freely available via Google Scholar or an online site then it doesn't need an EZproxy address.
Steps to creating your user friendly link:
If the permalink to an electronic resource doesn't have http://ezproxy.cdu.edu.au/login?url= at the beginning of the URL, it needs to be run through CDU Library's EZproxy link generator. Cut and paste the link into the first box, then click on the Create Link button.
When you see this pop-up box, click OK to create the link.
The resulting link that appears in the second box is ready to use in your Learnline unit now.
