Popular GALILEO Databases
Best practice is to link to material within GALILEO, whether it be an article, book chapter, or encyclopedia entry. Linking to content, rather than adding PDFs, ensures faculty are following usage guidelines and not violating copyright restrictions.
To ensure resources are linked properly, faculty should use a link either labeled Document URL or Permalink. These links can frequently be found in the Abstract of the resource, either towards the bottom or right side menu.
For EBSCO databases:
Step 1: Click on the Permalink chain on the lower right side of the abstract
Step 2: Copy & paste the entire link that appears in the permalink box above the abstract. Do not use the link in the browser's navigation bar.
For ProQuest databases:
Step 1: Click on the 3 dot circle on the right side of the abstract
Step 2: Copy & paste the entire link that appears under the All Save Options title. Do not use the link in the browser's navigation bar.
For Films on Demand, Blackboard has a building block that allows you to search directly in the database and simply click add. It is the easiest way to embed films.
First, go to Build Content --> Mashups --> Films on Demand Video
Search for a video you would like to embed in your course. Once you have found one, choose the select button under the video thumbnail. This will then open the Create Films on Demand Item options. The most important step is under the Mashup Options section. For View, use the dropdown menu to select Embed Video. Then select YES beside Show Films on Demand URL
Click Submit. Your video is now embeded and will play correctly in Blackboard.
