Linking to Database Articles

When providing links to articles in library databases, you cannot just copy and paste the url from your browser; those links will not work off campus or on the Mills-Guest wireless network.

  • For EBSCOhost databases, use the permalink option on the right hand side of the detail record. This link will work on and off campus.
  • For ProQuest databases, go to the Details tab and scroll down to the Document URL. This link will work on and off campus.
  • For all other databases and online journals, you need to add a prefix to the article’s url in order for it to work both on and off campus:

These methods will only work for articles that are covered by library subscriptions.
