Stable links are URLs for online library resources (i.e., journal articles, e-books. streaming media) that can safely be reused for off-campus access.To ensure compliance with copyright law and licensing agreements, use the appropriate stable links to share article-level or chapter-level content or streaming media within a learning management system (i.e., D2L) or in course-related materials.
Stable links are persistent. URLs that appear in web browser navigation bars are often dynamic, meaning they are unique to each web browsing session.
Stable links allow off-campus users to log in so publishers can recognize authorized MSU users.
Stable links make it easy to manage and copy content between courses in D2L.
For questions about stable links, please contact Discovery Services at 517-353-8700 or using this Contact Form that is also available on the MSU Libraries website.
