Persistent Links

Introduction

Many databases at Memorial Library have persistent links to the full-text articles that they index. These links allow you to place a link on your D2L page that your students can access at any time simply by clicking on the link and providing their MavMail username and password as login information. To create a persistent link combine the link with this proxy server script: http://ezproxy.mnsu.edu/login?url=

As an example, if the persistent link is:

http://search.epnet.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=aph&an=17714589

this combines to form with the proxy server script to form:

http://ezproxy.mnsu.edu/login?url=http://search.epnet.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=aph&an=17714589

The link to this article on your page would look like this:

Sliding Behavior in Nearctic River Otters: Locomotion or Play?
