To ensure that your students can access the case you wish them to read, please post a link to it in your World Classroom / Canvas course page. The link must include the library's proxy server address.  To capture the appropriate link, from the case record, copy the link labeled DOI, which looks something like this: .  The library3 part of the link is the proxy server; when clicked or copied and pasted into a web browser, the link should prompt your students to login to the library databases. 

Alternatively, you may download a PDF copy of a Sage case and post it to your World Classroom / Canvas course page.
