Link to ELM from Your Website

If your website doesn't mention ELM, we encourage you to do one or both of the following:

1. Create entries on your website for "ELM" and/or for the "Electronic Library for Minnesota". From these entries, you can link directly to the ELM resources at the vendor websites or you can link back to the database listings on your website. You may also wish to have a link on your website to the MnLINK Gateway at https://www.mnlinkgateway.org.

2. Add the ELM logo next to each ELM resource on your website (see logo download links above).

Some libraries have already added wording to the ELM resources to indicate the funding source. We encourage you to add the following wording to your site:

"ELM resources are licensed by Minitex with state appropriations to the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and the Minnesota Department of Education."

Help Collect ELM Stories on Your Website

We compile ELM stories and share them to inform legislators, administrators, and others about the importance of ELM resources for Minnesotans and to demonstrate the many ways ELM is used by people throughout the state.

To help us collect ELM Stories from your website, choose one of the following images and copy/paste the corresponding HTML code to your site.

ELM Radio Spot

From mid-May through the end of July 2010 and from all corners of Minnesota, you heard radio spots on ELM, the Electronic Library for Minnesota. The goal of these spots was to increase awareness of ELM and the perceived value of libraries in the minds of Minnesota residents.

Please help us promote ELM and Minnesota libraries by linking to the spot from your library's website. EBSCO Publishing created and sponsored this awareness campaign on behalf of Minitex.
