Facts on File

Bloom’s Literature

Infobase Learning (Facts on File) provides two linking choices for access to their products. Public libraries and academic libraries may link to either:

  • the ‘All Available Products’ menu page that provides the patron the option of choosing which database is needed; or
  • each individual database directly using separate URLs.

Link to 'All Available Products'

Link to http://online.infobaselearning.com/Direct.aspx?aid=XXXXXX&pid=WE00

Link to Individual Databases

Bloom's Literature - http://online.infobaselearning.com/Direct.aspx?aid=XXXXXX&pid=WE54

Note: In order for your links to function properly, you must substitute the correct Infobase Learning account id for your institution where indicated in the URLs above (where the XXXXXX is referenced).

Institutions that use proxy servers to provide remote access to these resources must also use these unique, customized URLs.

Please contact the Discus Office for your institution’s account id or if you have other questions about linking to the Infobase Learning databases.
