To comply with copyright and meet licensing agreements, you must use the appropriate stable link to share article-level content from e-journals or databases. Do not provide a direct link or upload the PDF of a journal article into D2L or other course-related materials.
However, some e-journal publishers do not allow full-text access to articles using stable links. Or sharing a stable link in a learning management system (i.e., D2L) or other course-related materials may be prohibited. If you encounter an e-journal platform that does not allow use of stable links for integrating into your course content, you will need to access the article using the library's online catalog.
For example, you may see similar messages when attempting to use a stable link that doesn't allow full-text access or sharing in course content (see images below):
