Stable Linking to Electronic Resources — Other

General Overview for Creating Links

Journal Articles

Find a stable link (permalink) or DOI for the article

Locate the database-provided permalink or DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Permalinks may be identified through a variety of names:

  • Permalink
  • Stable URL
  • Document URL
  • Persistent URL

Paste the permalink after the equal sign in the box below, then copy the entire contents of the box. Add the full link to HuskyCT.  Users will be prompted to log in with their NetID through the NetID Single Sign On, ensuring access when off campus. 

Note: A small number of databases embed the NetID Single Sign On within the URL.  If the link contains ezproxy.lib.uconn.edu, delete that portion of the URL before pasting it in the box below. For example, https://muse.jhu.edu.ezproxy.lib.uconn.edu/book/24965 should be https://muse.jhu.edu/book/24965

If there is no permalink, look for the article’s DOI (Digital Object Identifier). An article’s DOI can be found either in a database or through Crossref. Paste the DOI after the final slash in the box below, then copy the entire contents of the box. Add the full link to HuskyCT.  Users will be prompted to log in with their NetID through the NetID Single Sign On, ensuring access when off campus. 

Note: The DOI will only work for articles that are part of the Library’s subscriptions. DOIs for non-subscribed articles will usually return only an abstract of the article.

**To confirm the link is stable, we recommend you test the completed link in a different browser.

 


 

eBooks and Online Videos

Locate the permalink for the eBook or online video within the Library’s General Search

Add the link to HuskyCT

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.
