ICON links to library resources: Linking to Online Videos

Page to describe how to link to electronic library materials, including the off-campus access

Linking in ICON

All videos licensed by the UI Libraries can be used in ICON. Remote or off campus use requires authentication through a proxy server.  Information about adding the proxy prepend to a URL can be found on the previous tab.

Alexander Street Press

Each video in these databases has a persistent link and an embed code.  Once you find a title, click on the Embed/Link option.  A new window will display the persistent URL and an embed code for the video.  Copy and paste into ICON.

Examples

  • Persisent Link:  http://vasc.alexanderstreet.com.proxy.lib.uiowa.edu/view/1678565
  • Embed Code:  <div id="asp-embed-container-1678565" class="asp-embed-container"

If you find a video through InfoHawk, the URL should be provided.

Example

JoVE - Journal of Visualized Experiments

Each video (article) in JoVe hasa persistent URL. No modification is necessary to use these links in ICON.

To link to a video from JoVe

  • Identify a video in JoVe
  • Launch the video
  • An authenticated persistent link to the video displays in the URL address bar on your browser
    • Alternatively, there is a persistent URL in the sidebar labeled: "Share this Article"
  • Copy and Paste the appropriate URL into ICON.
