Permalinks for Library Resources

Direct, static links (aka “permalinks”) should be included on the LMS course page and/or syllabus for all specific library resources, including but not limited to books, articles, and databases. Use the instructions below to obtain the permalink for library resources and contact the library if you need further assistance.

Note: The link you see in the address bar when viewing an article in your internet browser is NOT a permalink. It will expire at the end of your browser session.

Links to Library Databases

In order to work from both on and off campus, links to library databases must be correctly formatted.

For example, the permalink to ATLA Religion looks like this: http://library.northwestu.edu/db/33

To obtain a permalink to a database, visit the databases page and right-click on the link you want.  From the pop-up menu, choose the option to “Copy link address” or “Copy link locaton.” Note that this will not work in the Microsoft Edge browser.
