Normally when you link to a web page, you just copy the URL from the address bar of your browser. But when you want to link to an article in a library database, you often need to get the link from another part of the page.
Many databases generate a URL dynamically from your search, and that URL only works for the duration of your login session with that database. It won't work for anyone else, and it won't work for you if you log out and log back in.
What you need is the permalink, sometimes called the persistent URL or PURL. Here's how to get the permalink for all of the library databases.
(including Women and Social Movements, Black Thought and Culture, In The First Person, North American Women's Letters and Diaries)
(including Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, PsycArticles, PsycInfo, SocIndex, ERIC, Education Source Complete, Education Full-text, America History and Life, Historical Abstracts, Environment Complete, Communications & Mass Media Complete, netlibrary etc.)
If you are taken to a page that has a built in PDF viewer... Copy and paste the URL in the left sidebar of the page. It will be under the thumbnail of the journal cover and over the "Cite this item" button.
