In library databases, look for something that says permalink, share, remote access URL, Get Link or look for a link icon or share icon. If a url is shown, copy it. If not, choose the link or icon and copy the url that appears.

Below are some examples of how to get a stable link for a resource in some of our most frequently used databases, including EBSCO databases, Films on Demand, JSTOR, Kanopy, NoveList, and ProQuest databases.

EBSCO

  1. On the page for your article or other item, select Permalink from the Tools menu.
    • On smaller windows or screens, Tools may be hidden.  To view Tools on smaller screens, choose the tab with the double arrow on the right side of the screen.
  2. Copy the link that appears at the top of the page.

On EBSCO item page, click Permalink under Tools and copy the link that appears.

Films on Demand

  1. On the page for your video, choose Share.
  2. On Share To box, select the Link tab.
