Linking to a UHM library electronic resource from Laulima (Manoa courses only)

> Return to Laulima Faculty Tutorials

If you are teaching a Manoa-based course and would like to make an electronic resource from a UH-Manoa library available to your students in Laulima via a Web link, the students will be required to log into the library's system to access the file:

Manoa library login page

As stated in the image above, "Most electronic resources to which UHM libraries subscribe are RESTRICTED to University of Hawaii at Manoa students, faculty, and staff to comply with licensing agreements." This tutorial illustrates how to link to a UHM library electronic resource in Laulima so students do not have to log in separately to the UHM Library's database.

Note: This will only work for students who are in the course in Laulima.

1. Locate your electronic resource and find the correct URL in the UHM Library system.

2. Go into your course in Laulima.
