The Library's digital resource collections allow users to share and save links to their resources. Faculty can use these features to recommend resources to their students, and to keep up to date on the resources for their field.
Many of the Library’s digital resource collections permit a user to place content links from the resource directly into Brightspace, Word documents, or presentations. In this way, Faculty can build reading lists for their courses.
To share links to digital resource collections:
Note: For your resources to be viewable off campus, the link you are giving your students must have the following prefix at the start of the URL: https://ra.ocls.ca/ra/algologin.aspx?inst=algonquin&url=
If the link does not have this prefix at the start of the URL, add it on before sharing the link with your students, e.g. https://ra.ocls.ca/ra/algologin.aspx?inst=algonquin&url=http://search.ebscohost.com.eztest.ocls.ca/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=650544&site=eds-live&scope=site

If you are including Library resources in Brightspace, you can use the Library Resource List Builder. The Resource List Builder allows faculty to create lists of Library digital resources from within their Brightspace profile. Students can then access these readings from within the course on Brightspace.
