Have you found a specific library resource that you would like to share with your class?
When you find an article, eBook, or any other library resource that you would like to share on your CelticOnline course, the best way to make it available is through a web link. However, you cannot use the URL from the web browser! You must use a persistent link, or permalink, instead. The permalink is available in the database record and may be lableled as a Link, Permalink, or Document URL, depending on which database you searched.
When Link is clicked, a window appears with the permalink already highlighted and ready to be copied with the right click of the mouse.
When this link is selected from within your CelticOnline course site, the student will be directed to login through the off-campus access page with their Carlow Active Directory username and password. After logging in s/he will be taken directly to the resource. If the student is on campus, they will be taken directly to the article without having to login.
To post a link to a resource from an EBSCOhost or ProQuest database into a CelticOnline course site, complete the following two steps:
For any EBSCOhost Database
For any ProQuest Database
Note that you see "carlow" in the web address!
Other Library Databases
There are a few library databases that are not listed above. If you are using a database that is not listed, it is recommended that you direct students to the library's web site, the name of the database (such as Britannica Academic), and the search terms they should enter to find the resource. Do not use the web browser's web address to link out as it may not work properly.
As with the Library Search database permalinks, when this link is selected from within your CelticOnline course site, the student will be directed to login through the off-campus access page with their Carlow Active Directory username and password. After logging in s/he will be taken directly to the article. If the student is on campus, they will be taken directly to the article without having to login.
Academic Video Online provides access to over 60,000 documentaries, training, and instruction videos that you can use for your coursework to accompany instruction. The database is vast, so the best way to provide these materials is outlined below.
First access Academic Video Online from the library's A-Z Databases Page. You will be directed to the main page with several options. The best way to find a video is with either a keyword search in the upper right corner, or a discipline-specific browse by using the "Disciplines" drop-down menu.
Under "Disciplines," you can navigate to the search pages for particular disciplines, and then further focus your browse down to particular subjects. (See the Alexander Street guide on searching and browsing by discipline for more information).
Once you have found a video you would like to link or embed, open the video itself. Underneath where the video is playing, there is a button that says "Embed/Link."
The window that opens will contain the permalink that you can use to share the video, or the embed code, which you can copy and then paste into Celtic Online as you will see shortly.
To embed this video to Celtic Online, first copy the entire embed code as you see here.
To paste this to Celtic Online in order to embed the video into your course site, follow these instructions.
