Learn how to create permanent URLs for the library's electronic resources: databases, journals, articles, ebooks, etc

ASP Links

In the upper right hand corner of most Alexander Street Press (ASP) webpages, look for this graphic  Permalink Graphic    to locate a permalink.  The audio/video databases use a text phrase "embed/link" for permalinks and this link is found with the citation or description.

You will need to add the library proxy URL to most of the Alexander Street Press databases.

Example 1:

1.  Click on the permalink graphic in the upper right hand corner and copy the link in  the "share this page" box.

2.  Next add the library proxy URL in front of the ASP URL.


2.  In this next example, again, click on the permalink graphic located in the upper right hand corner.  This time a box will open for you to copy the "static URL."

Next add the library proxy URL in front of the ASP URL.

3.  This example shows the Embed/Link.  A box appears after clicking on the Embed/Link.  The Proxy Prefix is included so you only need to copy the entire URL.  No editing or adding on your part!
