How to link to journal articles.


2. Select an article from the results list.



3. Click on the "Permalink" icon



4. Copy the permalink that appears on the page. 



5. The permalink should contain the prefix "" This prefix directs off-campus users to a login that will grant access full-text materials. Students can login with the StarID cedentials.  


6. Some databases do not automatically provide a proxied link. In these cases, you can try adding "" to the front of the database provided permalink to create your own proxed link. Please feel free to contact Travis Dolence ( if you need assistance with the process.
