Linking to Articles from Moodle

To link to electronic articles from Moodle, you will need to create a stable URL that does not change over time. Such URL’s are often called persistent links, but they are also known as permanent links, permalinks, durable links, stable links, or PURLS (Persistent Uniform Resource Locators).

Persistent Links connect users directly to a library database or an electronic journal article, and since no copying is involved, using them is one of the simplest methods of including high quality resources in Moodle websites, syllabi, documents, or emails.

For step-by-step instructions on creating persistent links in selected article databases, please refer to the table below.

Library Information

New Catalogue Search!

We have successfully completed our migration to a new Library System!
Some functions of the catalogue (as well as login and accounts) will look a little different, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

New Account Logins

To access your account, click on the "My Library Account" button. This will direct you to the new catalog search, where you can access your account by clicking "My Account", then "Log In" in the top right corner. 

For Ambrose Students, Faculty and Staff - use your Ambrose credentials (full email and password) to log in to your account. 

For Community Members, you'll be asked to provide your email address. You will then recieve a link via email, which will allow you access to your account for one hour. 

Do not attempt to access your old system account (through old links or bookmarks) - logging in will not work and that information is no longer supported or connected to our new system!
