Sharing Database Links: Home

Where to find links and when to use a proxy prefix.

Sharing Database Links

Most of the Library's subscribed databases offer links to their content. You can use links to share articles and E-books without having to manage downloads or worry about copyright issues.

This guide will show you where to find and generate subscribed content links for sharing with your students, classmates, and colleagues.

OneSearch Links

Any easy way to share links, OneSearch records contain a permalink along with the sharing and citation tools. It looks like the classic chain link. 

Keep in mind that these are bibliographic records and will require extra clicks to get to the full text if the item is an eBook or journal article. 

Click the link icon to call up the permalink or email the item directly by clicking the email icon.
