Stable Links for Electronic Resources

This is a how-to guide for creating permanent, stable links to MSU-owned full-text articles from online journals, e-books, and streaming video or other media.

Create Stable Links for Kanopy Films

To comply with copyright and meet licensing agreements, you must use a stable link to share streaming media. Do not embed a video directly into D2L or a course-related website. 

  1. Click on Share (see image below).
  2. Copy the URL shown in the Link box (see image below).
  3. Since Kanopy includes "msu" in their URL, this is your stable link, and no further modification is needed.
  4. See Stable Links Tips & Tricks for troubleshooting suggestions if your stable link does not work as expected.
