Faculty Workshop: Creating ProQuest, EBSCO, JSTOR, & CSA Static Links

The Bentley Library is offering the following workshop for faculty and Ph.D. students:

Creating ProQuest, EBSCO, JSTOR, & CSA Static Links
Monday, February 1, 2010@ 2:10pm (Activity Period)
Research Instruction Center (RIC), Library Lower Level, Room 011

A number of Bentley databases offer “persistent” or static links to articles that can be accessed for several years. Vendors such as EBSCOHost, ProQuest, JSTOR, and CSA provide different levels of linking to full-text articles and bibliographic citations.  This workshop will show you how to create durable links to articles with the comfort of knowing that copyright permission and royalties have been taken care of by Bentley’s site license.

Static links to database content can be used with your Blackboard course sites, online bibliographies, or personal websites. Workshop attendees will also learn how to make links available to off-campus users by including a proxy server tag with a static URL.

Please RSVP for this workshop by sending email to library@bentley.edu.
