Stable Links for Electronic Resources

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

Create Stable Links for E-Journal Articles

To comply with copyright and meet licensing agreements, you must use the appropriate stable link to share article-level content from e-journals or databases. Do not provide a direct link or upload the PDF of a journal article into D2L or other course-related materials. 

The process of creating stable links can vary between databases and electronic journal platforms. Note that stable links may not be available for every online library resource.
