Library services for teaching staff


By linking instead of copying you usually avoid violating copyrights. 

The URL in browser is not always accurate link. Instead you should use permalink, URN or DOI. DOI link is formed like so:[DOI identifier].

Off campus functioning links
You can make off campus functioning links with the library’s proxy server address

If you copy links in off campus access the proxy server address is already in the URL.

Top tip: Virtual shelf
