Creating Permanent Links: Permanent Links
Permanent Links (also called "Permalinks")
When creating documents or other materials for UB students or others, one may want to provide an exact link to a specific resource located in a database provided by UB.
Once you locate an item in a database you want to create a link to, there are just a couple of steps to follow.
The steps will vary slightly from database to database.
This guide will outline the steps to follow when creating a link to a resource within these databases:
- The UB Online Catalog
NOTE: Many of the other subscription databases at UB will have specific directions or icons that will guide the user to capture the "permalink" to a specific resource available in the database.
"Permanent Links" are referred to by many different names, including (but not limited to): permalinks, deep links, hyperlinks, persistent links, stable links, document links, or URLs.
