Linking to licensed resources

Many publishers do not allow for downloaded resources, such as academic papers, to be uploaded to eg. course webpages or teaching portals for students to use. The correct way is to link to the resource so no licenses are violated and all use is recorded for statistics. In order for the link to work also in remote use, it is recommended that you link to the SFX-window of the paper, which in remote use takes the user first to an Aalto login page and only then to the resource. The URLs of the SFX-windows are long but you can use the short link service to make them easier to handle.

Instructions on opening a paper’s SFX window and creating the short link can be found here.
