Permalinks

Permalinks for content from Pierce Library's databases will need to start with the library's proxy address: https://p-libpxy.piercecollege.edu/login?url= to work correctly from off campus. For many of the databases below, you will need to add the proxy address before the URL.

For example, a Science Direct article with the following URL:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0887618516301980

Will need to have the proxy address added to the beginning for it to work:

https://p-libpxy.piercecollege.edu/login?url=http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0887618516301980

  • Ebsco - After clicking on the title of an article, you will be in the item record. Under Tools, which is on the right hand side of the screen, select "Permalink". Copy and paste the URL that is given.
  • Gale - Some articles have the URL you should use at the bottom of the page. For others, you will need to click on Citation Tools and copy the URL that is on the MLA tab. You will need to add the library's proxy address to the beginning of the URL.
  • JSTOR - After clicking on the title of an article, look for the "Stable URL" which is up towards the top of the screen. You will need to add the library's proxy address to the beginning of that stable URL.
  • Proquest  - Use the URL at the top of the article page.  You will need to add the library's proxy address to the beginning of the URL.
  • Science Direct - Use the URL at the top of the page. You will need to add the library's proxy address to the beginning of the URL.
