Desire2Learn (D2L) is a learning management system.
CNA's Distributed Learning website provides direction on copyright matters for online courses (including the digital component of blended courses).
College of the North Atlantic - Qatar is committed to offering high-quality courses, including blended courses, that respect the intellectual property of others. This Copyright Guide on the CNA-Q Library's website provides additional information on copyright matters. Questions or clarifications regarding copyright matters at CNA-Q may be directed to the Manager, Library Services.
Diagram is derived from Brock University's copyright guidelines, "I want to upload something to Isaak/Sakai."
Camosun College and Lakehead University both use D2L. Their copyright sites provide simple advice on different resources you might like to post on D2L and what is required.
Check out UBC's Copyright and the Classroom video and the Sheridan Library series on YouTube.
The University of Prince Edward Island doesn't use D2L, but we recommend reviewing their copyright guidelines for the classroom.
Using a persistent link is one of the best ways to follow copyright and it allows the Library to track the usage of articles.
There are two kinds of persistent links that can be created.
1. I want to link directly to an eJournal, I have the citation for an article, but not a link.
Use the Article Linker tool and put in the Title of the Journal or the ISSN of the Journal. Click 'Search'.
You should get a page that lists all of the subscriptions the library has to the eJournal.
Example: The Economist (London)
The URL will begin with http://qd6kd9zl4m.search.serialssolutions.com/
For more help see How do I use the Article Linker tool?
2. I have the article open and I need a persistent link.
The URL will begin with http://connect.ca-qatar.edu.qa/login?url= for all of these links so that you can access the articles off-campus. If it does not appear, you can add this to the beginning.
Other databases, such as CRCnetBASE, use a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to create persistent links. You can copy and paste these. An example looks like: https://doi.org/10.1201/b18526
