Sharing Articles

To share articles for discussion or collaboration with your classmates, you can do one of three options:

  • - Share a permalink from a database
    • - How to find a permalink:
      • - On many databases, there will be a "Permalink" option in a sidebar or near the top of the screen. See below for an example from Business Source Complete. Click the permalink tool and copy the web address that pops up.
        • - Note: the URL from the top of your screen will likely give a 404 Not Found message. A permalink will be stable and shareable.

  • - Download and post the article within a BlueLine course discussion board
  • - Download and email (within the scope of educational "fair use" purposes—not for public distribution outside of Creighton University).
