Add a Link to a Library Database

Add a Library Database Link in Your Bb Course

Add a stable link to a library database in Blackboard that your students can access both on or off campus.


  1. Go to the Databases by Subject page or Databases A-Z page and locate the database you want to add. 
  2. Right Click on the name of the database and select:
    • "Copy Link Address" in Chrome
    • "Copy Shortcut" in Internet Explorer
    • "Copy Link Location" in Firefox
    • "Copy Link" in Safari
  3. Use the copied link to create the database link in Bb.  This URL has a built-in code that will allow off-campus access.
