Stable Links for Electronic Resources

How to create stable links for online journals, e-books, and streaming media

Creating Stable Links in Blackwell/Sage/SpringerLink/Wiley

  1. Copy the URL in the address bar from the full-text view of the article.
  2. If this URL includes .proxy1.cl.msu.edu or .proxy2.cl.msu.edu string, you will need to remove it.
  3. Change the dashes to dots in the base URL.
  4. Add the EZproxy string, http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url= to the front of the revised URL to create your stable link.

SpringLink also includes a DOI, so an alternate method is to use the instructions for DOIs.
