Selkirk College subscribes to a wide variety of article databases that offer full-text articles and citation information.
If you are currently off campus you will be prompted to login using the same username and password you use for Webmail, Moodle and On-campus computer access.
For a complete A-Z list of our current databases, please click here.
“I would like to link to journal articles from library databases for my course. How can I do that?"
Search the Library databases for a articles that you’d like your students to read. PDF is the most common full text format.
Links can be embedded in Moodle or in software such as MS Word or PowerPoint.
“Can I publish the full text PDF of the article in my Moodle site?”
It depends on the licensing agreement. Currently only PDFs from EBSCO databases may be posted to Moodle. For databases from other vendors (including JSTOR, Proquest & Ovid) a persistent link should be used.
Copyright law requires that a full citation be provided for all articles that you use (link to or post).
Choose whichever citation style is applicable to the course: APA, MLA, Chicago or other.
Review the suggested citation with a critical eye. There may be errors.
Follow these instructions to link to the article using the permanent url. Important: Do not copy the url from the browser bar. This link is not permanent.
Correct article URLs will begin with this prepend: https://selkirk.idm.oclc.org/login?url=
Important: If the prepend is missing, paste it in front of the article URL
Users that are off campus or are using a remote device will be prompted to login to access articles.
It is good academic practice to include a complete reference list of all the works included in your Moodle course. Remember that copyright law requires that full citations be provided. The reference list would include citations for all the articles, ebooks, streaming videos, websites etc. that you link to.
