Why should I use permanent links (aka permalinks or persistent URLs) from Rod Library databases?
Using the correct link, a permalink, will ensure students and other authorized users can access subscription materials off-campus when you share articles. They will automatically be prompted to enter their CatID & passphrase. And these links will not timeout as sometimes occurs with URLs from the browser’s address bar.
In terms of copyright, linking is preferable to downloading/providing pdfs to others electronically or on paper.
