Ebsco Permalinks

Ebsco permalinks (chainlink icon) are located on the Tools menu of all Ebsco screens - always located on the right side of the page

Copy the entire URL in the box that appears after you click on the permalink.   Ebsco permalinks include the library’s proxy for authentication off campus.   So, you are all set to go if you share the link with another SJSU library user.

Reminder:  DO NOT copy the URL in the browser address.  This is session based and will expire.
