Library Resources for Teaching Online: articles

This guide contains library resources for teaching online classes.

Linking to articles

To encourage your students to review the course readings, you can provide links to the journal articles in your online course.  Whenever students click on the link and login with their Rutgers NetID, the usage statistics of the article is captured.  We appreciate your linking to the articles because the usage statistics help the Libraries justify the cost of subscription to the publication.  More importantly, you avoid any copyright infringement. 

To find out how to search for journal articles at Rutgers, follow these instructions.

Information on Course Reserves

The Course Reserve collection provides convenient access to books and other materials requested by the faculty. While students are expected to obtain personal copies of the textbooks for their study, the reserve collection allows many students to equally share class materials.

Visit our reserves web site and submit your reserves request. 

Create Persistent links for the articles

If you use Blackboard, Canvas, eCollege, Moodle or Sakai to post course related materials, you can provide "persistent links" to ebooks or articles that are available electronically. What are persistent links?  Visit this guide to find out more.

For persistent links to work from off campus, the following proxy prefix must be attached before the link.  Simply add it to the front of the link or use the box below to create a persistent link.
