There are two options for creating permalinks to O'Reilly books:
1. Find the book in the library's online catalog. Ignore the line that says "Permalink" and instead, right-click on the link that says "Connect to resource Safari Books Online. Unlimited simultaneous users" and choose "Copy link address".
2. Alternatively, instead of finding the item in the BGSU catalogue, you can just add "https://go.oreilly.com/bgsu/" to the beginning of the URL of an O'Reilly book. The generator below will do this for you.
