Frequently Asked Questions
How can I create a persistent link to an article I found in one of the library databases?
Answer:To create links to individual articles from within a database follow these steps:
- Locate the article that you are interested in, click on the FindIt! button or link.
- In the FindIt window, select "Copy Citation or URL for this page."
- A new window/tab will open showing the citation, and below that, a persistent URL to the article.
- Copy and paste the persistent link into a document, Moodle, course page, blog or other website. The link will generate a FindIt! link to the article; off-campus users will be prompted to login.
Note: Most license agreements do not grant unrestricted rights to download and re-post content. Therefore, as a rule of thumb, link whenever possible.
