A stable link is a web address that will consistently point to a specific information source such as an ebook, an article, a record in the catalog, a video, or a database. A stable link may also be called a permalink,document URL,persistent URL, or durable URL depending on the resource. You may also use a DOI (digital object identifier) found in many databases.
The tabs within this guide provide easy, database-specific instructions for locating and creating stable links that can be placed into your HuskyCT course.

eBooks & Online Video
Locate the permalink for the eBook or online video within the Library’s General Search
Permalinks take students to the item record in General Search, where they will find a link to the item. This extra step ensures the stability of the links over time.
