Persistent Links and Stable URLs


 

Brief directions for the following library resources
that utilize persistent linking are listed below:

ACM IEEE JSTOR Literature Resource Center

Ebsco Databases ProQuest Databases


 


ACM
ACM is a database that contains literature from the field of computer science. Once you locate an article, use the DOI Bookmark to link to a specific article.

Example:


The persistent link for this article is:
http://rlib.pace.edu/login?url=http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/954339.954340
 

 
IEEE

Persistent links can be retrieved from this database by simply copying and pasting the desired URL from the address window at the top of the screen. I recommend linking to an abstract of an article. This allows users to select either HTML or PDF format for viewing articles.

JSTOR
JSTOR contains full text back issues of over 100 scholarly journals in 15 disciplines. It is contains searchable full text. Once you locate an article, click on Citation/Stable URL to get the URL for an article.

Example:

The persistent link for this article is:
http://rlib.pace.edu/login?url=htt p://links.jstor.org/sici?sici=0021-8723%28199312%2980%3A3%3C868%3ATLOPIT%3E2.0.CO%3B2-I

 

Literature Resource Center
Literature Resource Center contains reference book, journal, and other periodical articles. It is searchable by Author, Title, Keyword, Full text, or a combination. If the article you are viewing contains a blue circle with a yellow i, you may copy and paste the URL from the browser as a direct link to that article.

Example:



The Literature Resource Center is a database provided by the Gale Group. Other databases which are provided by Gale work in a similar way. Some of these databases include:

- Business and Company Resource Center
- Health Reference Center Academic

ProQuest Databases
The Pace University Library subscribes to many databases via Proquest. The interfaces for searching and retrieving articles in these databases are similar. Here is a list of some of the ProQuest databases:

- ABI Inform
- National Newspapers
- Research Library

Link directly to articles while in these databases by using the Article URL listed under the citation when you select a result. These URLs are exceptionally long. Scroll to the right to make sure you have the entire Article URL.

Example:

Ebsco Databases
The Pace University Library subscribes to many databases via Ebsco. The interfaces for searching and retrieving articles in these various databases are similar. Here is a list of the most used Ebsco databases
- Academic Search Premier (multidisciplinary)
- Art Abstracts
- Business Source Premier
- CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature)
- Communications and Mass Media Complete
- ERIC
- Medline
- PsycINFO


Copy and paste the URL listed after "persistent link to this record" at the bottom of the citation.
