Yes, you read that last one correctly. Although the licenses for databases vary, many don’t allow you to download copies of articles (such as a pdf) and post them on another site, even within Canvas. Linking to articles in the library databases bypasses the copyright issue because you’re not making a copy. It’s also recommended that you put a citation for the article in your Canvas course (for proper attribution and to model best practices to students). Luckily, many of the library databases have a feature that provides citations in different formats. Just look for words such as “Cite” or “Citation” to locate those.
Streaming video is available from the Highline College Library and can be directly embedded into Canvas courses. View the Google Docs below to learn more about how to embed streaming video from the Highline College Library into your Canvas course.
Please note: When accessing articles, ebooks, and streaming video through the Highline College Library's databases, users will be required to authenticate with their myHighline username and password (the same credentials used for Canvas and email).
