Library Services for Faculty and Staff

Welcome to the Library Services for Faculty and Staff research guide.

Linking to items found in the databases

Library databases are purchased for SWU students, faculty, and staff. The library has different databases that contain articles, videos, music and art.

When embedding an article link into your course or other documents, you aren't able to simply cut and paste the link found in the URL (web address).  There is a syntax you need to follow, and of course it varies by database.  Adding a permalink to your course readings follows copyright procedures with no headaches!

Linking directions vary for each database and directions can be found below.
