How to Find Permalinks
A permalink is the URL of an article, eBook, video or other electronic content located on the web. It is called a permalink because it’s not expected to change. Many of the Library's databases contain an option to generate permalinks so that you can easily get back to a resource or share it with others. Always look for the permalink option as opposed to copying a URL from the address bar as those links will not take you back to the resource.
