How to create Links

Most research databases include a persistent or durable link in the record. The location of these links vary from one database to another. Use the Linking to articles guide for detailed information on how to locate persistent links in the Colleges subscription databases. Consider using this option to provide access to articles, newspapers and other electronic resources.

 What is a Persistent Link?

Persistent links are URLs provided in many online resources that allow users to link directly and consistently to the online article, document, book, video, etc. Also known as stable link, durable link, persistent link, permanent link, document link.  It's important to note that links located in the address bar of your web browser when you search the library's subscription databases - are not persistent links and will fail to allow continued access to the record.
