Linking to Articles, eBooks, and Streaming Videos from the Library's Databases: EBSCOhost

EBSCOhost Linking Outside of Blackboard

The following instructions are for creating links outside of Blackboard.   

   1. Search for the article, open the full record for the item, then click the ‘Permalink’ tool on the right hand side of the screen. Do not simply copy the URL from the browser’s address bar as this is session specific and the article cannot be retraced once the session ends.

   2. Highlight the document’s Permalink URL that appears at the top of the article and copy and paste it into the desired location.

   3. An example of an EBSCOhost article URL would look like this: http://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:80/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=60391824&site=ehost-live.

   4. Once created, the student will be able to click on the link and be immediately taken to the item, whether an article, video, or database. They will not need to log-in again in order to access the Library webpage or other resources.

EBSCOhost Linking in Blackboard

The following instructions are for linking in Blackboard only.   

   1. Search for the article, open the full record for the item, then click the ‘Permalink’ tool on the right hand side of the screen. Do not simply copy the URL from the browser’s address bar as this is session specific and the article cannot be retraced once the session ends.

   2. Highlight the document’s Permalink URL that appears at the top of the article and copy and paste it into Blackboard.

   3. You will need to insert “auth=bb&” into the URL between the “?” and “url” (http://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:80/login?auth=bb&url=) so that students will not be required to log-in as they move between the Blackboard and Library resources.

   4. An example of an EBSCOhost article URL would look like this: http://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:80/login?auth=bb&url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=60391824&site=ehost-live.

   5. Once created, the student will be able to click on the link in Blackboard and be immediately taken to the item, whether an article, video, or database. They will not need to log-in again in order to access the Library webpage or other resources.

EBSCOhost Linking for D2L Courses

The following instructions are for linking in D2L only.   

   1. Search for the article, open the full record for the item, then click the ‘Permalink’ tool on the right hand side of the screen. Do not simply copy the URL from the browser’s address bar as this is session specific and the article cannot be retraced once the session ends.

   2. Highlight the document’s Permalink URL that appears at the top of the article and copy and paste it into the desired location.

   3. You will need to add an 's' to the first 'http' and replace '80' with '9443' (https://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:9443/login?url=).

   4. An example of an EBSCOhost article URL would look like this: https://ezproxy.bellevue.edu:9443/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=60391824&site=ehost-live.
