In order to link to library material, you need to use a permalink. Permalinks, or permanent links, are a type of persistent identifier which is designed to be a long-lasting reference to a web page. The permalink is not always the same as the URL in your browser’s address bar.
To create a link that can be accessed off-campus, you also need to include Lesley’s proxy prefix. If the proxy prefix is missing, students will not be able to access materials off campus.
The easiest ways to ensure that you have a persistent link with a proxy prefix are:
To link to the item record in @LL Search, simply search for your resource using the title, author, or any other relevant information, click on the title from the search results page, and select “Permalink” from the Tools menu on the right. A box should appear above the title with a URL that starts with http://ezproxyles.flo.org/login?url=. Copy this URL and paste it wherever you would like to share a resource with Lesley users!

These are the best ways to link to the vast majority of Lesley's resources, with a few exceptions. To link to specific newspaper articles, see the tips on our Self-Service Portal on linking to newspapers here.
