Sometimes you have to look in a different place to find a good, permanent link that will get you back to the full-text of an article from the library's databases.

LibSearch (EBSCOhost- EBSCO databases such as LibSearch, Academic Search Premier, and CINAHL have an icon on the right side of an article (under TOOLS) called Permalink. Click on that and copy the URL that pops up to add to the end of your citations, which often don't have the Permalinks included (see screenshots below):


ProQuest - ProQuest databases such as ABI/INFORM, Criminal Justice, Psychology, and Health & Medical Collection have a Document URL at the bottom of the Abstract/Details page. This FAQ has screenshots showing where it is, and links to videos to make it clearer how to find persistent links in different databases.

If you are still having difficulties, go to one of our Chat icons and chat with a librarian.
