Stable Links to Online Articles, eBooks & More

Consistent access to online readings from Library databases requires links that are proxied and stable. This guide presents resources for this process.

Why Stable Links?

For online course readings to work well, on and off campus, each one must have a stable, proxied link.

These links or URLs may be known as persistent, durable, or stable, jumpstarts, or permalinks, depending on the source.

Offering links to readings offers many advantages over copying material, saving time and avoiding additional costs associated with reproduction and distribution.
