When creating links to licensed resources, such as Ejournals, Ebooks, or databases, within documents or webpages, such as syllabi or Blackboard courses, you cannot copy an Ebook or Ejournal’s URL (the web address) from a browser’s address bar and paste it into a document or webpage.  The link will work while on-campus, but it will not work from off-campus. 

Off-campus access to licensed online resources is controlled through the use of the Libraries' proxy server that directs users to authenticate when accessing a licensed resource.  The RowanSOM Library has a guide that explains how to create links to online resources that will work on-campus and off-campus
