Directions for Slingshot Adopt

Slingshot Adopt for Messiah Educators

Submit course material adoptions through the Slingshot Pro Adopt tool using your Messiah login. Content from Library resources can be easily linked to courses in Canvas and in your students' Slingshot Student Portal if you submit a Custom Product Adoption.

Please see the PDF directions below.

Reminder about links to Library eresources

Using permalinks from PRIMO are recommended for embedding or sharing links to library e-resources.

Faculty are responsible for ensuring that their course materials comply with copyright law. Creating links to online resources instead of copying the files is one way of ensuring copyright compliance.


For directly linking to a database (Not PRIMO)

  • To enable off-campus access to Murray Library's online resources, every link must be preceded by Messiah's ezproxy information: (the equals = symbol must be included).
  • Databases vary in the way they provide stable URLs.  See database or publisher-specific directions below.
