Persistent Links: Summon

Learn how to create persistent links to articles in BGSU library databases that will work from on or off campus.

Persistent Links from Summon

The URL in your address bar IS a persistent link to a specific search (not an individual search result). It will take the user to that result list in Summon, and then they can link to full text from there. There is also a "permanent link" that appears in each result which will take you to that source in  Summon. Click on the "link" icon and copy the permanent link that appears.
