Using Library Resources in Canvas

This guide details how to use and embed library resources in Canvas so that students can access the content you have chosen.

Linking to a Gale eBook

To link to a Gale eBook in your online courses or course shells so that your students can easily reach the intended resources, you must use a permalink, not the page URL.

1. Find a Gale eBook you wish to use in your course through the library catalog (see the Link to eBooks page for more information on this).

2. Click the title to view the catalog record.

3. Click on the link in the catalog record that reads GALE EBOOK: CLICK HERE TO ACCESS to access the detailed record page.

4. Copy the URL from the address bar and paste into Canvas.

5. Alternatively, find the Get Link button at the top of the page. Copy this link and paste it directly behind the EZproxy prefix (https://ezproxy.hccc.edu/login?url=) into Canvas.

2. Click the title to view the catalog record.
