Creating Stable Links to Electronic Articles: Gale Cengage

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

Creating Stable Links in Gale

After selecting your article from a Gale resource, look for the "Bookmark" icon (see image below).

After clicking "Bookmark," a pop-up window will display. Copy the Bookmark URL. The URL may run on for several lines, so be sure to copy all of it. 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.
