Linking to Tracks or Albums/Videos
To link to a track or full album/video in Alexander Street Press products (Smithsonian Global Sound, Opera in Video), do the following:
1) Locate the album or track in the database
2) Click "Embed/Link":
3) In the window that opens, copy the link or the embed code as desired:
4) Paste the link URL in an External Links box in Canvas, a Word document, email, etc., or the embed code into a web page for use. Do not try to simply copy the URL from the browser's address bar as you normally would for a web site: that method will not work.
Off-campus users will be prompted for their UST username and password before accessing the resource. Faculty members should test the resulting links in their final form from on and off campus to be sure they work before sharing with students.
