Having your student log into the databases also has another benefit of encouraging your students to learn how to use the resources provided by the library for future research.
Unfortunately, there is not consistency as to what these links are called across EbscoHost, ProQuest, etc. In some they are called "permalinks" or "Copy Link", regardless of the name they are the same thing, a persistent link. Make sure to find that link on the page and copy and paste that link into Blackboard.
1. Login to ProQuest
2. Search for articles.
3. In the results page, click on article title.
4. Select and Copy URL for ProQuest Article. (The URL is already a Permanent Link.)
5. Paste link in Blackboard.
