5)  On the next screen, type in the information for the article in the "name" and "description" blanks (you may wish to copy and paste the citation from the database).

  • For example: "bigfoot." Chambers Dictionary of the Unexplained, edited by Una McGovern, Chambers Harrap, 1st edition, 2007. Credo Reference

Check the box, below the "Description," labeled "Display description on course page," if desired.

6)  In the box labeled "external URL," paste in the "Page Link" you copied earlier.

You must use the link from the Page Link option, (not just the URL in the browser) if you want students from off-campus to access the article.
