Link Directly to Library Materials


If you want to link to a specific ebook, article, streaming video, or other library item in Brightspace or email for your students, get the permalink through Primo:

  1. Open the Drake Memorial Library homepage.
  2. Search for the item you would like your students to review. 
  3. Open the detailed record from the results list by clicking on the title.
  4. In the detailed record, click where it says "permalink" to populate the URL.
  5. Copy the entire permalink URL from the detailed record to paste into Brightspace or email.
  6. Follow the instructions in Brightspace to add the item to your course materials.
  7. If you have trouble with this, please use Ask a Librarian.


If you would prefer to use the permalink directly from a specific database provider, please follow the instructions in the Unique Database Links area of this guide for how to do so.
