How do I find a stable permanent link to LMU e-resources? How can I make sure students can access this article or e-book off-campus?
Creating stable links to library resources --Most of the library's e-resources are set up to work automatically on-campus, but off-campus links must be correctly configured so that students and faculty are prompted to sign in with their MyLMU information off-campus. This guide will cover how to find or create these links from different databases.
EBSCOhost databases(OneSearch+, Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, ERIC, etc.)
Other databases & DOI or "stable link" options Some databases offer "stable link" or DOI options. These links won't work off-campus in most cases, because they do not tell the database that you are affiliated with LMU.
You can fix this by adding a snippet of text to the beginning of the stable link or DOI.
The snippet is: http://electra.lmu.edu:2048/login?url=
JSTOR stable link: https://www.jstor.org/stable/26411545
LMU specific stable link: http://electra.lmu.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/26411545
DOI link: https://doi.org/10.1300/J122v18n04_02

E-book stable links
For e-books, an easy way to make a permanent link is to click the library catalog link to "Bookmark link for this record" rather than linking directly to the e-book. Once you click on Bookmark link for this record, copy the URL in the browser bar above for the stable link.
You can also link directly to the e-book by right clicking on the Read Online link and clicking "Copy link address".
