Using Library Resources in Brightspace: Using Images

This site provides detailed instructions about using Library resources within the D2L Brightspace platform, as well as troubleshoots the most common access issues.

Embedding Images

Anatomy.tv images can only be linked within your course. After you locate the image you want to use,

1. Click on the share icon on the left side of the screen.

2. Copy the URL that is listed for the image. Since this link is not configured for off-campus use, it must be modified.

3. Use the Library's Link Helper tool to add the proxy link.  Remember that URLs should begin with http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url=

DO NOT copy and paste the URL from your browser's address bar as this will not produce a stable link.

Link Not Working?

Does your link begin with http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= If not, here's how to fix the issue:

A persistent link (permalink) is a direct URL that will remain stable over time and is found within the resource record.  You typically DO NOT use the URL found in the address bar at the top of your browser.

A proxy link is code that allows off campus access to library resources and is added before the persistent link to the resource (if not automatically included).  The library's proxy code looks like: http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= ...

If your link does not start with the proxy code, add that code to the front of the URL and check the new link in a browser. If you need any help adding the proxy code, check out the link helper page or contact your library liaison!
