To ensure that your links work for off-campus users, make sure that the URL begins with http://ezproxy.bgsu.edu/login?url=
If you are linking to articles in open-access journals or to freely available web content, you don't need to add the EZ Proxy URL.
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.
