As you might have discovered, simply copying and pasting the URL from the browser does not ensure a durable link - in fact, those browser links are often temporary "session" links that are unique to your session on your computer.

If you want to share a link to a book, book chapter, article, streaming video, or any other online resource provided by EKU Libraries, you can consult our guide to linking or if you encounter any problems or have a question, please ask us so we can advise or troubleshoot your specific question.

**We thank your for testing your persistent links at the beginning of each semester**

Instructions for Creating Persistent Links (Permalinks) to Frequently Used Library Resources:

  • Articles
    • EBSCOHost Databases
    • JSTOR
    • ProQuest
    • Sage
    • ScienceDirect
  • Streaming Videos
    • Alexander Street Academic Video Online
    • Kanopy Streaming
    • New Day Digital Streaming Videos


Please visit the Guide to Linking to Online Library Resources for a full list of examples of linking to EKU Libraries' online resources.
