Persistent links and Camosun proxy prefix

Persistent links

Persistent links (also called permalinks, stable URLs, or document URLs) point to specific articles, journals, e-books, or searches from library research databases. They allow authorized users to access learning resources either on or off campus. Persistent links can be used within teaching materials, SharePoint, D2L, email or reference lists.

Best practice is to use the most direct link available (i.e. from the publisher or database) when providing links to your students.

Camosun proxy prefix

Persistent links to Camosun library licensed e-resources should start with the following string of characters:

Open Access articles do NOT require the proxy prefix.

NOTE: Not all databases provide persistent links in the correct format. Be sure to TEST permalinks on and off campus before sharing them!  Please contact the Research Help Desk or the Systems & Discovery Librarian if you have questions.
