How can I check if there is a link available to the document?

There are three places where you can look for a link:

In case there is no link available to the document, you must upload the document to the Copyright Repository. See here for hands on guidance.

1. Leiden Catalogue

  1. Go to Leiden Catalogue and search for the document. 
  2. If the document is available in the catalogue you can copy the permalink and past it as a weblink/hyperlink in your course.
  3. If the document is not available you can check out the Copyright Repository or Open Access publications

Future development has been planned for a seamless Brightspace integration. In that you will be able to place links from the Leiden Catalogue directly from your course into your content. Moreover, the Leiden University Library is working on a Single Sign On experience, so that both students and instructors do not have to log in again when opening a resource

  1. Go to your course > preferred module and click on Add existing
  2. Click on LOR and start your search
  3. If the document is available in the copyright repository you can place the link directly in your course.

3. Open Access Publications

  1. Go to creativecommons.com, https://doaj.org/, https://www.openaccess.nl/en  or another open access website and search for the document.
