BadgerLink URL Changes

The BadgerLink badger enjoying fall
Fall is just around the corner. Time for apple picking, raking leaves, and helping students get back on track! BadgerLink plays a big role in students’ lives by providing reliable online information that isn’t available through free search engines. Educators and librarians are welcome to link to the BadgerLink website or directly to any of our resources on your website!

To better serve your users, it’s important to have the correct BadgerLink URLs. We use special authenticated URLs to our resources, to ensure that only Wisconsin residents are using our resources. If you aren’t using the correct link, you and your students won’t have access!

If you already link to BadgerLink resources on your website, you should know that some URLs have changed. But don’t worry, the updated URLs are easy to find! In the blue menu bar at the top of the BadgerLink website, click on Get the Word Out!. Then select, BadgerLink on your Website. On the BadgerLink on Your Website page, you can find a Google sheet for all of our current direct links. You can go ahead and bookmark this Google sheet so you can always access the most current URLs.
