To link to a specific database, use a specially formulated URL to provide reliable access both on and off campus. To determine the unique URL for a particular resource:

Add links to an entire full-text electronic journal:
Link to the University Libraries' E-Journals search site using this URL https://pallas2.tcl.sc.edu/login?url=http://www.tdnet.com/scg/.

Students can type in the journal title they need and find where this journal is available online through the Libraries' subscriptions.

Add links to specific articles or article abstracts/citations:
Already have the citation? Search the University Libraries' E-Journals to see if it is available electronically unless it is freely available on the web.

Want to identify possible articles to use with a class? Begin by searching a database through the University Libraries' Electronic Resources page.

Once you've found what you want to link to your next steps depend on the database or index.
