Durable Links to Articles

For articles among search results in most library databases:

Step 1:

From the list of citations, click on the title of an article which indicates HTML or PDF Full Text is available.

Step 2:

In the box on the right or on the bottom, look for the option that matches one of the examples below and copy the "Bookmark," "Permalink" or "Document URL."

 of EbscoHost right hand task bar

 of Proquest document URL

Step 3:

To enable off-campus access to the articles, you will need to add the following prefix to the URL address:

https://login.library2.csumb.edu:2248/login?url=

Therefore, a complete durable link would look like this:

https://login.library2.csumb.edu:2248/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/815282959?accountid=10355

For Links to Other Full-Text Databases

A number of other databases enable the creation of durable links to specific articles using the URL from the browser's location bar:

JSTOR Retrospective Journal Collection

Project Muse

Sage Journals

Science Direct (Elsevier)

SpringerLink Journals

Wiley Interscience Journals

Some of these use DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) in a form similar to 10.1016/j.chb.2010.04.025 that you can use as a durable link.

Otherwise, simply search or browse for the article to which you want to link, open the PDF or Full Text, and copy the URL address from your browser once you've located it.

Again, if you want to enable off-campus access to the articles, you will need to add the following prefix to the URL address:

https://login.library2.csumb.edu:2248/login?url=

For links to articles found using OneSearch

Search for the article using OneSearch and select Articles as the scope of your search.

Click on the title of the desired item in your search results to display the full record for the article. Select one of the links labeled "Full text available at" and right click on the link. Copy and paste the link into your own web page. You do not need to add the proxy prefix in order for the article to be accessible from off campus via OneSearch.
