Faculty: Use the SHC EzProxy link+ Database Permalink to share articles with students instead of posting copyright protected articles directly in your online courses/sites. First, find the article on the website. Then use the permalink on that page. It's a stable URL that can be found in the database of the article listing. The combination link will take students to the Burke Library database for that article. Copy and paste this link and add the permalink after the equal sign: https://ezproxy.shc.edu/login?url=
Note: Off-campus students will need to log in to the library website with their BadgerWeb ID to access it.
