Creating Permanent Links to Articles With Library Databases

Introduction

Professors and librarians can create permanent links from HTML web pages to full-text articles or citations in EBSCO (Academic Search Elite, Alt-HealthWatch, ATLA Religion Database with ATLASerials, Business Source Premier, Communication & Mass Media Complete, ERIC, Health Source Consumer Edition, Health Source Science, Military & Government Collection, MLA International Bibliography, PsycINFO and SportDiscus Plus, America: History & Life and Historical Abstracts), ProQuest (OxResearch, Los Angeles Times, Research Library. Los Angeles Times Historic, New York Times Historic and General Science Plus), JSTOR databases and ebrary online books. Once users have entered their passwords, they can access articles from a link without the need to actually conduct a search. Students may then access articles or citations from professor's web pages, e.g., Courses (powered by Sakai).
