If you are linking to articles, databases, eBooks, or other library resources in Moodle, the link will not work unless you use the permalink provided or attach a proxy prefix.
1. Find the permalink in a library databases. A permalink is a stable URL that runs through the Spalding Library proxy server. This lets the database recognize that you are affiliated with Spalding and have access to the material. This link is different from the main URL link found at the top of the browser. When linking to library resources in Moodle, using the permalink will ensure that students can access the article. Below is an example of how to find the permalink for an article in an EBSCO databases.
2. Or, use the proxy prefix: http://ezproxy.spalding.edu:8080/login?auth=shibboleth&url=
If you cannot find a generated permalink, you can create a permalink by including the proxy prefix before a standard URL. Add the browser url after the "url=", including http://.
