1. Find out whether the article is available in full text in one of the library’s databases by using the Citation Linker feature on the library’s website at https://library.wheaton.edu/citation_search.

2. If the article is available, create the persistent link by following the steps outlined on this webpage.

These steps show you how to create persistent links in some of the databases that the library uses, including ATLA and other Ebscohost databases, JSTOR, Lexis-Nexis, WorldCat Local, and others. If the article you need is in a database not covered by these instructions, please contact us at research.help@wheaton.edu (x 5169).


3. If you need help with putting the links in Schoology, please send an email to research.help@wheaton.edu.

After creating the link:
1. While at a computer on campus, test the link in Schoology to ensure that it works.
2. If possible, test the link using a computer off-campus also.
3. Beside each link you create in Schoology, state the full bibliographical information for the article. This way, your students will be able to track down the article even if the link fails for some reason during the course.
