Permalinks allow the library to maintain accurate usage statistics, which ensures that we continue to purchase and renew the resources you need.
We strongly recommend using permalinks instead of uploading articles, ebooks, etc. to Blackboard or file sharing because permalinks ensure that you are not in violation of copyright law.
Permalinks are a reliable means of sharing search results, and specific resources such as articles and ebooks. Copying and pasting the URL from the address field may not take you back to that original page. Permalinks ensure that the link will take you where you want to go.
When you find the resource you want to link, click on the title and a new page will open. Under "Tools," click on "Permalink." A window with the permalink will open above the resource title.
In JSTOR, a permalink is referred to as a Stable URL. To locate the Stable URL for a resource, click the title of the resource - a new page will open and then you can find the Stable URL under the title.
In all ProQuest databases, a permalink is referred to as a DocumentURL. To locate the DocumentURL for a resource, click the title of the resource - a new page will open and then you can click the "Details" tab (sometimes this tab is paired with the abstract).
Scroll down and you should see the Document URL near the bottom of the page.
