×The Lesley Library stands in solidarity with the Black community in condemning systemic racism and police brutality and is committed to the fight for racial justice. If you are interested in resources for learning more, see our growing list here.
P.S. Our library buildings are currently closed as part of Lesley's COVID-19 response, but you can still check out our remote services or Ask Us!
In order for students to be able to access library content remotely, links to library content must include a permalink, and an EZproxy prefix. A permalink is a stable URL designed to be a long-lasting reference to a web page; the EZproxy prefix routes users through our proxy server that tells vendors to give users access through Lesley.
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:
If you are having difficulties linking to library content, or a link is not working, please ask us!
Searching for Course Material
The easiest way to see if Lesley already has a specific title you are looking for is to do a known item search by entering the name of the resource into @LL Search. This will return eBooks, streaming media, articles, and even databases. If we already own the item, and you wish to link to it, simply click on the title and create a permalink.
