  2. Once you have found and opened your course, click on the name of the article you want to link in your class. 

  3. Copy the "Online Access" link
    1. Top copy a link: hover your mouse over the link, right-click, and then choose Copy from the menu that appears. Alternatively, highlight the link text and then Press Ctrl+C or Cmd+C on your keyboard.
