Persistent Links for Library Resources

This guide describes how to create stable links to electronic articles, electronic journals, and databases licensed by the UO Libraries.

Persistent Links for Library Databases

Similar to links for journal articles, you can provide a direct link to one of the library's databases in your course or on a Web site.  By using the link/URL available in the library's Databases A-Z list, you will have a persistent link to a database.  This URL can also be used as a bookmark in your browser.

1.  From the library's homepage, click on the Databases A-Z icon. 

2.  Locate the database you need and click on the icon to the right of the database name.  Note the lock with O indicates that you must be on campus, authenticate through the library's proxy software, or logged into the VPN to connect to the database.

3. Copy the URL in the box.   Database links copied from the Databases A-Z list will include the proxy prepend information.
