Permalinks: Linking to Articles, Journals, Books, and Chapters
You can make persistent or durable links to specific journal articles or other items in many library databases. By placing these links in your course web page, your BlackBoard class, or on a reserves list, you can easily direct your students or other members of your research group to required or suggested readings.
Not all of our databases and electronic journals offer the ability to deep-link directly to an article, and some of those who do offer the service may set an expiration date on the URL. For this reason, we encourage you to test your links thoroughly and regularly, updating them as needed.
Have an ejournal or article link that you need to proxy for off-campus access? Use our handy proxifier tool to automatically generate a proxied URL for remote access.
Send your questions about persistent links to Beth Juhl, Web Services Librarian.
