Stable Links for Electronic Resources

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

Stable Links to E-Books

Some e-books available from MSU Libraries display within our electronic discovery service (EDS).  In these cases, use the Permalink as your stable link.

Note that users will need to click on the PDF Full Text option on the left hand side to view the book in their browser once they have clicked on the provided stable link.  (Full Download may require a separate, additional free EBSCO account and may have limits on how much of the book's content can be downloaded, saved, printed, etc.)

Stable Links to E-Book Chapters

Using the same example as above, to link to a specific chapter in an e-book rather than the book itself, expand the Table Of Contents for the book and click on the desired chapter.  Then use the Permalink for the chapter as your stable link.

 

The text of the chapter should open for viewing in the browser window when clicking on the stable link to the chapter. (Full Download may require a separate, additional free EBSCO account and may have limits on how much of the book's content can be downloaded, saved, printed, etc.)
