How to Find and Link to Journal Articles Online
This page is for instructors interested in creating links to online journals within LATTE. Linking to online resources is an easy way to give your students access to the materials without scanning and posting them. It also assures that you are within the guidelines for fair-use of a copyrighted work.
For help with this process contact the Information Desk at the Library at 781-736-4670 or email@example.com.
