Links to books, ebooks, and articles in the library catalog are dynamically created and this is why you cannot just copy and paste the URL from your browser’s address box. To link to an exact item in the catalog you must copy and save the persistent URL for the item, also known as a permalink.

To find the permalink, you need to be on the item’s details page. You can get to the details page by clicking on any item in your results list.

  1. In the upper right corner of the title information section, you should see a link labeled “Permalink”

  2. Click on “Permalink” and copy the URL that appears

  3. Paste the link in the location of your choice
