Creating Stable Links to Electronic Articles: Ovid

This guide describes how to create stable links to articles licensed by the MSU Libraries.

Creating Stable Links in Ovid

A Jumpstart URL is used to create stable links in Ovid. Click on the title of the article you want to create a stable link for (see image below).

 

From the next screen, select the'Email Jumpstart' option on the right (see image below).

 

An 'Email Jumpstart' pop-up should appear (see image below). Copy the Jumpstart URL and use that as your stable link. Examine the link and if it already includes proxy1.cl.msu.edu or proxy2.cl.msu.edu in the string, you do not need to do anything further. This is your stable link. If the link does not already include the proxy1 or proxy2 string in the URL,then add the EZproxy string, http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url=, in front of it.
