Creating a link in MyGateway with directions to retrieve an UMSL document

Many UMSL databases have full-text articles to which faculty, staff, and students are entitled access. Rather than upload an entire document to MyGateway, consider placing an "External Link" with directions on how to retrieve the article.

Or use the following steps:







In MyGateway, post an External Link using the link to the database description above. Post directions on how to search for the document you wish retrieved, e.g.,

Chinese Painting and Archaic Greek Art
This link connects to the library database, JSTOR. Click on the link "Search JSTOR." Once connected, submit a search for "Chinese Painting and Archaic Greek Art" to retrieve the article.
