Before placing an e-book on reserves or linking it in Canvas for your course, you need to make sure the following:
eBook with limited concurrent user access
Not all eBooks are in perpetuity in our collection
Link eBooks in Canvas
eBooks can be linked in Canvas for your courses. In order for both teaching faculty and students to be able to access these ebooks on campus and remotely, you need to make sure to use the ebook's permanent link plus the campus EZProxy prefix.
Example 1 -- Permanent Link from OneSearch Result
If you've obtained the permanent link from your OneSearch result, you don't need to add the library's EZProxy prefix
Wyness, L., Stanner, S., & Buttriss, J. (2013). Nutrition and development: Short- and long-term consequences for health (British Nutrition Foundation). Chichester, West Sussex: Published by Wiley-Blackwell for the British Nutrition Foundation.
How to Obtain a Permanent Link?
OneSearch Result--click the PERMALINK under Send To
Example 2 -- Permanent Link from an individual eBook package
BEM, S. (1998). An Unconventional Family. Yale University Press.
From JSTOR eBook package.
Permanent eBook URL: https://www.jstor.org/stable/j.ctt32bkvj
In this case, you need to add the Cal State LA EZProxy prefix: http://mimas.calstatela.edu/login?url= in front of the book permanent URL, so your eBook URL will have two components: EZProxy Link + Permanent Link
In the example above, the correct URL to use for Canvas, email, etc. is:
