Links to Library content in D2L: Formatting Your Reading List in D2L

You will need to edit in D2L

While much of the content of your course may be documents you've created in other applications and then uploaded to D2L, when you are setting up a reading list with links to resources that are  external to D2L (e.g. a journal article from a publisher's web site), you will need to edit the links in the D2L HTML editor.

Step 1) In the HTML editor, choose the 'Insert Stuff' menu and then

Step 2) 'Insert Link'.
