Integrating Library Resources into Teaching and Learning: Linking to an Article

Tips and tricks for using library resources in your courses, including reserves, persistent links, video, images, and more.

Linking to an Article

EBSCOhost Databases 

When viewing an article record in EBSCOhost, look for the permalink icon in the far right 'Tools' column:

JSTOR 

When viewing an article record in JSTOR, the persistent link is listed as the stable URL:

Credo Reference 

Within Credo, you'll find a persistent link in the top toolbar:

You can use it to link to results, articles, and any other type of page within Credo.

Gale Databases 

Just like we did in Credo, you can use the bookmark option found in all Gale Databases (excluding Gale Directory Library) to link back to any page within a Gale resource. You can link to articles, results, and publications using the bookmark function (it'll always be in the same place).

Here is a screenshot from Gale's Science in Context:

Important note: You don't need to add the proxy prefix to the persistent link supplied within Gale databases, even though it is not visible. In fact, if you add the proxy prefix the link will not work. Gale links are already formulated to direct the user to the proxy.
