The following instructions are for creating links outside of Blackboard.

   1. Search for the desired resource and open the full record for the item. Copy the complete URL from the browser's address bar. This URL should end with bookid=xxxxx or bkid=xxxxx where xxxxx is any five digit number.

   2. Paste the URL into the desired location, and ensure that it begins with the http:// prefix.

   3. You will need to insert http://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:80/login?url= immediately in front of the URL, and remove the x from /toc.aspx?.
