Linking to Library Material

In order for students to be able to access library content remotely, links to library content must include a permalink. The easiest way to create a permalink is through @LL Search. Simply search for the title of the resource you want to link to, click on the title of the resource in the results page, select "Permalink," and copy the link that appears. Do not copy the URL from your browser's address bar! This is not a persistent link, and will not work for anyone else you share it with. Check out this screencast for step-by-step guidance:

If you are having difficulties linking to library content, or a link is not working, please ask us!


Search for streaming video at by typing in keywords (or a specific title), and in your search results use the left-hand menu to limit your results to just Format: Video.  Streaming video will have links instead of call numbers.  We don't recommend embedding library-subscription videos into Blackboard because it's going to take the students to the full streaming video database to log in first regardless. Just use the Share or Permalink buttons to get a link that works off campus.

Looking for Hollywood feature films? Try the library search first, and then try Tubi. They were bought by Fox Corp last month and are adding content all the time.  They have agreements with Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Lionsgate, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures.


Search for eBooks at by typing in keywords (or a specific title), and in your search results use the left-hand menu to limit your results to just Format: eBooks.  If you open up the eBook online you can navigate to a specific chapter and the permalink button will let you link to that specific page for students.


If you typically come in or send your students in to look at our current magazine subscriptions, here are some alternative ways to stay current and browse contemporary art!

  1. You can follow hashtags on Instagram to get related content in your feed. Find the popular ones for your practice, like #ceramics and look at the related tags too.
  2. If you're Googling around for inspiration and all you're getting are Pinterest pages leading to nowhere, try adding -pinterest to your search to exclude those results!
  3. Check to see if your favorite magazines/journals are available online!  Search for a magazine or journal title to which dates we have access to.  Here are some of our favorite discipline-specific titles, some that the library provides access to, and some that are free digital publications:
