Course Reserves: Finding Persistent Links

Use this guide to find answers to your questions about finding and using course reserves.

A Vendor-based Guide

Most databases make persistent links easy to find, but some require a little extra effort, and a select few don't generate persistent links for you at all. This section will walk you through the process in most of the databases that the library offers.

Not sure what your database's vendor is? Look for any of these logos on the screen.

Making Sure Off-Campus Users Have Access

To ensure that your links work for off-campus users, make sure that the URL begins with http://ezproxy.bgsu.edu:2048/login?url=

For example: http://ezproxy.bgsu.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/3556958

If you are linking to articles in open-access journals or to freely available web content, you don't have to worry about this.
