Use the tabs along the top of this guide to find information on how to properly link to full-text journal articles, e-books, or online videos accessible through subscribed databases. These permalinks can then be inserted into the Readings Module in VU Collaborate, and used to embed streaming video content into VUC unit spaces.
IMPORTANT: The contents of this guide were updated on Tuesday 25 February 2020.
Updates will continue through 2020 as VU Library changes the way we link to online resources. We recommend checking the contents of this guide frequently as we continue to update advice and instructions.
Permanent Links, or 'Permalinks', are a more stable, persistent shortcut to a record. Permanent links ensure access to resources both on and off campus.
If you want to link from the Readings Module in VU Collaborate to a journal article, e-book or chapter, or embed streaming video content in VU Collaborate, it is essential that you use a permanent link to that library resource platform or the library catalogue.
College Librarians can provide further advice and training regarding linking to VU library material.
