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. Correctly formed permalinks will also contain the Library's proxy prefix, so materials can be accessed off campus.
The easiest way to create a permalink is through @LL Search. Simply search for the title of the resource you want to link to, click on the title of the resource in the results page, navigate to the tool bar on the right-hand side, and select "Permalink," and copy the link that appears. Do not copy the URL from your browser's address bar! This is not a persistent link, and will not work for anyone else you share it with. Check out this screencast for step-by-step guidance:
