While it's tempting to scan a journal article into Canvas for instructional use, it's most likely against copyright to do so! Chances are that article, or an even more appropriate and current one, is available through the library's databases. The best way to make journal readings available to your students is to copy and paste the article's "persistent URL" or “permalink” (when available) from the library database into your Canvas classroom. This link will take your students directly to the database record, including the full text.
If there is no persistent URL or you need help in finding and copying the persistent URL, contact a librarian. We're here to help you navigate these databases!
If you do not use a web site or course management system, you may also distribute a one-time photocopy of the reading to the class. Read more about photocopying rules for face-to-face teaching.
The library's licensing agreements with database vendors allow faculty and currently registered students to access individual articles in the databases. Because only currently registered students and faculty can access Centralia College's Canvas classrooms, the copyright owners continue to be protected.
