In order for a persistent link to work for off-campus users, the link must include the prefix https://login.ezproxy.stthomas.edu/login?url= or the embedded code string .ezproxy.stthomas.edu/.
In some cases the code string will already be part of the persistent link, but for others you will have to add it. It is up to you to identify whether or not the code string is already there. Note for Factiva: all Factiva “share” links must be run through this Proxy Me widget in order to work.
Example of a persistent link that already includes the code:
Example of a persistent link that needs to have the Ezproxy code added:
In most cases, you will likely add text & links to or embed library content in the following Canvas content types:
In each of these content types, you will create your content via a rich text editor box (modules also have an External Link content type you might use). In the example below, this time we'll discuss adding an article or ebook link via a rich text box in a Canvas Assignment content type.
Once you have found the durable URL for your streaming video or audio title in the applicable library database and ensured that it includes the library EZ Proxy coding (as described elsewhere on this page), it's a snap to place it in Canvas.
