How to Share an Article with other JMU members

Use this tool to create persistent links to articles in Factiva that can be posted in Canvas or shared with other JMU users. Factiva's structure does not allow you to copy a link directly from the database.

Create a link to an article

1. In Factiva, find your article and copy the "Document" number located at the bottom of the article.
