Permalinks are the easiest way to link to library resources in Canvas, course syllabi, reading lists, websites, and email. A permalink (also called a persistent link, permanent link, stable link, static link, or durable link) is a URL or web address that will consistently point to a specific library resource, such as a full-text article, ebook, ejournal, streaming video, database, or record in a database.
The easiest, fastest way to create a permalink to an individual article, ebook, or video, is in Fusion.
Many resources have an option for creating permalinks. Be sure to test your permalinks before sharing.
The easiest way to obtain a permalink to a database is on the Databases A to Z page.
Each record in Ignacio: Library Catalog has its own permalink.
There are three ways to create permalinks to individual journal titles.
1. In Ignacio: Library Catalog, click the Permanent Link button in your selected record. Your permalink will appear in the web address bar.
2. InJournal Finder, search for your journal. Find the correct entry and click on the journal title. Select Permalink in the toolbar on the right and copy the permalink.
3. In Journal Finder, search for your journal and find the correct entry. Look at the time span available in each database or publisher site and make a selection. Find and copy the permalinks on those sites.
In this example, you may use the URL on the publisher site.
