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.

Permalinks in EBSCOHost Databases

EBSCOHost uses permalink as the label for a persistent link. 

Creating a permalink in an EBSCOHost database provides access to the article only if the full-text of the article is available in an EBSCOHost database.  Not all citations in the EBSCOHost databases provide access to the full-text of the article.   Articles that include the full-text will offer a link for either "PDF Full Text" or "Linked Full text".   If the full text of an article is not available in the EBSCOHost database, use the FindText button to see if the article is available from another journal package or database. 

After you run a search in the database, click on the title of the article to which you want to create a permalink or persistent link.  Do not use the PDF full text or Linked Full  Text link in the results list.   From the citation record, click on the Permalink icon in the Tools menu on the right. 


Copy the URL in the Permalink box.   Be sure to copy the entire URL.  Check the URL to be sure that is starts with  

The full link to the article will be similar to this:
