Permalinks (for use in Scholar, syllabi, etc.): About

Provides instructions on creating permanent links to library materials that are in subscription databases including articles, ebooks, streaming video, etc.

Why do I need it?

  • Links (URLs) you see in the your browser when using a database are often tied to your search session.
  • These type of links do not work once you leave that search session.
  • DOI numbers link to the journal publisher's website; in most cases the full-text is not accessible there for free.
  • Permalinks provide stable links to databases and items within the database.
  • Using them assures that you can provide a link to other CNU users that will work on or off campus.
