Vendor-Specific Instructions

EBSCO Database

EBSCO Databases call the persistent link a permalink, which is common for many other databases as well.

  1. Once you find the article to which you would like to link, click on the "Permalink" chain link icon under the tools menu.
    Depending on whether you are in detailed view or full text PDF view, you may see just the icon or the icon with the text “Permalink” in the right-hand menu.
  2. Copy the URL to the right of "Permalink" that appears at the top of the page.
    This URL includes the ezproxy prefix for off-campus access and is ready to add to your course.
