Explains what permanent proxy links are & how to create them.
Ezra Lehman Memorial Library subscribes to many electronic journals and full-text databases. These subscriptions come with licenses which allow users affiliated with Shippensburg University access to online content which falls within these subscriptions.
Licenses are based in contract law; these license terms may override Copyright restrictions. Often, these licenses grant more leeway in providing online access - though some licenses are more restrictive in certain circumstances.
EZproxy is software that the library uses to provide "authenticated" off-campus access to licensed library resources for Ship students, staff, and faculty. The EZproxy URL string directs users to a webpage where they must log in with their Ship credentials (Ship username/password, or library barcode number). The software confirms "OK, you're a Ship user - go ahead to the resource!" and then the user is passed through to the database or other subscription content.
Ship Library's EZproxy URL is http://navigator-ship.passhe.edu/login?url=
However some database vendors do not support the addition of this authentication for individual titles or other discrete content in the database. On this page we provide instructions for how to add this EZproxy URL so that links to content will be accessible from off-campus
as well as on-campus.
Permanent (also called stable, or persistent) links to articles, audio tracks, or video segments, etc. are available in most library databases. However the links are located and named differently by each database vendor.
1. Article links in EBSCO databases are the easiest.
Use the "Persistent link to this record (Permalink)" near the bottom of the article description page.
