Creating Stable Links to Books in LWW Health Library

1. Find the book, either through our ebook guide, finding the text in MSU's library catalog, or by searching the LWW Health Libraries platform (via the library link to the platform). All of these options will give you a link that can be used without any changes.

2a. In our ebook guide right-click on the book's titles and copy the link. That link can be pasted directly into your course materials. It will already have the ezproxy string attached to it. For example, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, 7e is linked like this from our ebook guide: http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url=http://meded.lwwhealthlibrary.com/book.aspx?bookid=739

2b. You can also search for a book in MSU's library catalog. Select the title you want, make sure it is followed by [electronic resource] because this title denotes an electronic book from a print book. In the electronic book's catalog record right-click on the link below the "Available Online:" text. This link contain the ezproxy string and can be pasted directly into course materials.

For example, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, 7e is linked like this from the library catalog: http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url=http://meded.lwwhealthlibrary.com/book.aspx?bookid=739

2c. In the LWW Health Library platform copy the URL from your browser's address bar. It will have either a .proxy1.cl.msu.edu or .proxy2.cl.msu.edu in the URL. For example, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, 7e would be: http://meded.lwwhealthlibrary.com.proxy1.cl.msu.edu/book.aspx?bookid=739

You MUST change this URL or it may not load efficiently for users. The changes to the URL only involve the first section of the URL - remove the .proxy1(2).cl.msu.edu string. Add the standard EZProxy string (http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url=) to the front of the URL and the link should work.
