Creating Persistent Links to Content in Library Databases

See also Persistent Links to Search Results for instructions on how to link to an entire search strategy rather than a single item/article

A persistent link is a URL that will work months or years later. Persistent links are also referred to as permanent links, durable links, stable links, or (in EBSCO) "permalinks".

Persistent Links connect users to content instead of making a local copy; because no copying is involved, there are no copyright concerns.

Make Your Links Work Off-Campus!

To be sure your links to licensed Library resources work for off-campus students, prepend this ("proxy") prefix to each URL: 
Or paste the unproxied persistent link of the item below to convert it to a "proxied" link that will work for both off- or on-campus students.

For step-by-step instructions on creating persistent links in selected article databases, please refer to the database below, and click on the database vendor link.
