Why durable links?

Durable links are hyperlinks to electronic resources (e.g. journal articles, books and book chapters, databases, etc.) which are available as part of the University Libraries' online collections.  Durable links allow faculty to connect students to required and recommended readings and do not require faculty to obtain copyright permission. 

What do you want to link to?


If you wish to provide links to library databases, the best link to share with students can be found on the Libraries A-Z Databases page.

Article, Book Chapter or Streaming Video

If you wish to provide links to articles, book chapters or streaming videos from subscribed library resources, go to the Link Creator tab of this guide.

Other types of resources

If you wish to provide links to other types of library resources, please contact your subject specialist for assistance in assigning an appropriate link that students can use from on or off campus.
