When using the Search Anything or Article Search boxes on Milner’s home page, or in any other EBSCO database, you will need a permalink to access the article later since a copied URL from an article database page will time out and stop working after a short time.  A permalink generated by a database should always take you back to the article or other database item. The graphic below shows how to access a permalink for an article in an EBSCO database.

If a database does not have a permalink option, use the database email option and you will be sent a permalink.  When a permalink or email option is not available in a database, note the citation information (title, author, journal title/vol/issue, date, etc.) for the article or item, so that you can search for it again later.
