Sharing Database Links

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


EBSCO refers to its persistent links as permalinks. The permalink button can be found at the article level in the right-hand column along with the other productivity tools. The icon looks like a chain. EBSCO permalinks work off campus. Users who click from off campus will be prompted to log in.
