Persistent links for library resources: index

Persistent Links are URLs that connect users directly to an article, ebook, ejournal, or library database by clicking a link embedded in a webpage. Persistent links can be useful when creating syllabi, online reading lists or bibliographies, and other research tools. Persistent links can assist instructors in complying with copyright rules when downloading an article from a library database and making it available through a Canvas course or departmental website may not be allowed by the database vendor's contracts with the university. Linking to these articles also provides the University Libraries with more consistent usage statistics for our databases.
