Copying and distributing text

Posting Links to Online Readings
If you wish to share an electronic article by email or for an online course you should provide a link to the source, the web address or a citation. For example, if you wish to refer a colleague, a student or group of students at Emily Carr University to an article from an electronic journal available from the library send the persistent link to the article or library database. The library subscribes to a large number of full text databases that allow linking in an online course environment.

Proper citing of sources is essential in academic work. However, it is not part of copyright.

For more information on citing, consult the library’s citation guide.
