Creating and Using Persistent Links to Articles

What Are Persistent Links?

A persistent link is created by special software (identified by "Find It @ UGA"). It allows you to send a link to students or colleagues that is not dependent on your individual search session. When someone clicks on such a persistent link, they will see a menu of full-text and print options to access the article.

How to Use Persistent Links

Persistent links can have many uses, including:

  • Class web sites

These persistent links will require MyID and password login for off-campus users.
