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.


In terms of copyright, linking is preferable to downloading/providing pdfs to others electronically or on paper. See instructions below to learn how to link to library databases. Your liaison librarian is also happy to assist you.
