Linking Library Resources to the ANGEL LMS

The ANGEL system allows you to link to library resources on your course pages. Your students will be able to use library databases, online articles, and find research sources without leaving ANGEL. By using the linking features in the Resources module in ANGEL you can create a personalized list of resources for your students.

Open up your Course page: Choose the course page to which you want to add links. Click on the Resources tab. Then, click "edit" in your "Course Resources" box. Click on "Add a Link." Paste the web address (include "http:") for the item you want to add: database, online journal, online article, or online book. Add a title for the item.
Since most of your students will be using ANGEL in an off campus environment, you will need to insert the proxy authentication string in front of the address of your item in order to make the resource available to them.
