Linking to Online Resources Using Permalinks

Instructions to locate permalinks for resources in K-State Libraries' databases.

Ebook Bookmark

In Gale Virtual Reference Library, a permalink is referred to as a Bookmark URL. To locate the Bookmark URL, select the resource and then click "Bookmark.". 

The Bookmark option is located on the upper right-hand side of the screen and it is the second to last option.

A window will open with the Bookmark URL.

Copy the Bookmark URL from the center of the pop-up window

You May Need to Add a Proxy to Links From This Resource

Kansas State University Libraries’ proxy URL usually looks like this, and tends to be at the front of a URL: 

If you need to add the proxy prefix in front of the resource, use Link It. Link It creates accessible links to materials that are only available through K-State Libraries’ article databases or electronic journals accessed on campus.

However, be sure to test all links off-campus.

If you are unsure if a resource has the proxy URL, please Ask a Librarian.
