REMOTE INSTRUCTION: LSA Databases and Google Classroom : Easy Integration !: Home

Simple directions to connecting LSA;s Gale and Ebsco database articles for teachers' Google Classrooms for reading/assignments

Remote Learning Made Easy with Google Classroom Integration


Hello LSA Faculty!  

Our tried and true Gale, EBSCO, and ProQuest databases have great remote learning options.  You and your students have seen/utilized these databases many times before, and the resources (reference, biography, journal, newspaper, video etc) are great starting points and/or assignments for so very many topics.  Unfortunately the JSTOR &  ABC-CLIO resources do not have the Google Classroom integration feature yet.

Two important recommendations:

1) Log in to your LSA Gmail account first so once you open the database it can locate you and your Google Classroom


2) Remote logins for our databases (for off-campus access) can be found via the 'School Links and Files Box  -> Library E-Resources Link"  (in the middle of your homepage in Portals.  We cannot post them here as this is a live, public webpage. NOTE: EbscoHost resources should not have login boxes for RI residents.

Basically if ONE login box appears use the Username only; if TWO login boxes appear - enter Username in top box, Password in lower box


*NOTE re: EbscoHost database logins 

a) Login boxes for RI residents will not appear (these are state resources)

b) MA and CT faculty and teachers will need to enter this Library Card Number when prompted: 21116006968431


Throughout LSA's Distance Learning period, and as always:
