Beyond the Textbook: Integrating Library Resources into Blackboard

Integrating Library Resources into Blackboard

ScienceDirect

  

URL: http://library.vccs.edu/license-bin/linker.plx?scivrs

Leading scientific database offering journal articles and book chapters from more than 2,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 11,000 books. Limited full-text access. 

To limit your search to articles and book chapters you have access to, go to the Advanced search screen and from the Refine your search menu, check mark the boxes next to Subscribed publications and Open Access articles.

1. From the results list, click on the article or book chapter title you wish to link from your Bb course.

2. When the full article appears, copy & paste the URL in your browser address bar into your Bb course.

3. You DO NOT need to include the proxy prefix in front of the Science Direct URL, but if you'd rather play it safe, you can add the proxy prefix:

http://ezproxy.vccs.edu:2048/login?url=

Or use the VCCS EZproxy URL generator.

Your final URL should look something like this - click on the url below to go to the article:
