Library: Readings on Discovery

Adding Links to Readings on your Discovery Course page

Faculty members are encouraged to post their readings online via Discovery (rather than use printed course packs which are sold in the book store).  Use the copy machines in the library to convert print materials to PDF and email them to yourself.  Then links to these documents can be added to your Discovery course page. 

Redeemer’s web-based course management system (Discovery) allows you to enhance your courses with links to internet resources, online discussion forums, course notes and announcements, etc.  If you want to add an article to your Discovery page, you may do so if the library owns it (in either print or electronic format). For example, if the library subscribes to a journal in print format, you may scan an article and make it available via Discovery.  

Also, you may add a link ("permalink" or stable URL) to an article or e-book in one of our subscription databases. For help with adding links to ebooks, go to "How to find an E-book" and scroll down to "Find the Permalink (stable URL)."   For web-based self help with databases, look under the Databases tab above.  For further assistance with databases, speak to a librarian (Marlene Power  or Tricia Kok). They can also search our databases to see if an article you wish to use is available electronically.

If you need to set up a faculty account on Discovery,  contact Ron Cornies in the IT department.
