What is permalink?
A permalink is a static or permanent web address (URL) that points to a specific item such as an article or e-book.
Why use permalinks?
If you copy a URL directly from the browser address bar the link is often not a permanent one, as some databases change the link address for each new search session, even if you are looking up the same information. Conversely, a permalink is intended to remain permanent for a long period of time.
Will the permalinks work off campus?
Subscription database links will not work off campus without authentication through a proxy server. If the permalinks do not include the campus proxy URL, students will not be able to access the material from off campus. Some databases will add the proxy URL automatically, and some will not.
What is a proxy server?
The proxy server allows you to connect to SJC Libraries e-resources from off campus by redirecting each request through a computer on campus.
What is the library's proxy server address?
The proxy server address should be placed in front of the permalink address for library resources that require authentication. Some databases such as EBSCO, Gale, and ProQuest may already include the proxy server address.
Where do I find permalinks?
Most databases will have a permalink somewhere in the record, but each database may post them in different ways and places. Sometimes they are called permalinks, sometimes they are called persistent URLs.
Faculty may reserve required or recommended readings for their courses. To reserve an item, contact the library at least four weeks before the class requires the material. Material will remain on reserve for the semester, but will be returned to the shelves or faculty member once classes end.
The library policy for placing photocopies of published copyrighted materials on reserve is derived from the fair use provision of the Copyright Law of the United States of America

Librarians also offer one-on-one research consultation. Please contact the library at least two weeks prior to the scheduled library class to schedule a session.
