We have recently been transitioning URLs for many of our databases to direct URLs so that you do not have to select a database to search, go to the vendor’s database menu page, and then re-select the intended database. This results in less “clicks” for the user and should be much more simple, all around.
However, this is a good time to mention that you should double-check any direct links to articles in Library databases that you may have posted in your Blackboard course shells. These links can change from time to time, and this recent change may effect some of those links as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this (email@example.com).
