Information about linking to resources

  • If you do not see an example for the database that you need to use listed on the "Finding the Permanent Link in Databases" page, please contact the library: Go to our Ask-a-Librarian page to get assistance.
  • Do not copy and paste the URL in your browser's web address bar unless directed to do so in the information presented on the "Finding the Permanent/Persistent Link in Databases" or "Linking to Streaming Videos" pages.
  • A permanent link is a URL that will remain stable over time and allows a user to access the linked document later. A permanent link may also be known as Persistent, Permalink, Durable, Stable URL, or Digital Object Identifier (DOI) Name.
  • Only Stout students, staff, and faculty with valid credentials have remote access to library-licensed electronic resources.
