Linking to Library Databases

To put links onto Blackboard or to send a link to an article by email to someone in your class follow the instructions below. Current AUP faculty, staff and students may access databases and articles from home.  In order for these links to function correctly from off campus, you will need to add the following prefix to the addresses: http://proxy.aup.fr/login?url=

If there is a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for any article, ebook, etc. you can create a link from that. You may find something like DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0089153 or you might find one in a url form http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/CCO9780511793363. For the url form you just add the prefix before it - http://proxy.aup.fr/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/CCO9780511793363. For the first example, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0089153, it is necessary to use this prefix before the DOI http://proxy.aup.fr/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/ and it will work. http://proxy.aup.fr/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0089153 This will ensure that off-campus users are directed to the login form prompting them for their AUP NetID (eg. a12345 or jsmith) and password (the same username and password they use to sign onto a computer on campus). If you do not add this prefix, off-campus users will be prompted for the old per-database passwords, which were invalid as of Summer 2006.

You want to make sure to use 'persistent' links. When you search a database, it often adds information specific to that search (the date, time, etc.) and the URL at the top of the page may not work at a later time. Below you will find some examples of links to entire databases or individual articles, demonstrating the changes you will need to make.  If your students report problems accessing the material - please check the link you created, get the student to check the FAQ and then contact Sally Murray smurray@aup.fr  if the problem is not solved.

Example of Normal address:
http://www.lexisnexis.com/us/lnacademic

Example of Address you should use:
http://proxy.aup.fr/login?url=http://www.lexisnexis.com/us/lnacademic

It is not easy to create persistent links to Lexis-Nexis articles. See the LexisNexis page - http://www.lexisnexis.com/academicmigration/viewpage.asp?p=8  Raleigh Muns, a reference librarian, at UM-St. Louis Libraries has created a software that can help - http://www.umsl.edu/~muns/urlmakers/au/

Choose either Single Date (Optional EZProxy URL's) or Date Range (Optional EZProxy URL's).  Place the prefix for the EZProxy URL in the box at the bottom.  Use Single Date if you know the exact date of an article and use Date Range to do a general search over a period of time.  Test your link when you finish!

At times, it may be easier with Lexis-Nexis to tell the students the parameters for a search and let them do it themselves or, if you only want them to look at one article, copy the article itself onto Blackboard and they can view it online.
