When sharing content through email or Moodle, only link out to content from the library catalog, library databases, the College Archives or content that is open access. If there is no access through the library or in the open, use Interlibrary Loan.
Davidson College Archives This is the portal for resources relating to the history of the College.
When linking content from a library database, make sure you use a persistent link rather than the url in the address bar.
Persistent Links show up in various places, depending on the database, for instance, in ProQuest the persistent link shows up on the abstract/details of the record:
The persistent link is also known as a document URL, persistent URL, PURL, durable link/URL, or stable link/URL.
To ensure that links are available for use off-campus, add the following prefix to the link: http://ezproxy.lib.davidson.edu/login?url=
The ezproxy prefix will route any off-campus user to Davidson single-sign-in.
