Linking to Articles, E-Books, and Videos: Examples of Database-Provided Links

How to create a link to articles and other content from library research databases.

Format of Links to Articles, Ebooks, & Videos

These are examples of the links provided by our research databases and online collections to directly access specific artlcles, e-books, and video records. These links are called stable URLs, document URLs, permanent links, share links, or something similar. Instructions for viewing these links are given on the How to Link tab of this guide.

As explained in greater detail on other pages of this guide, these links usually have to be preceded by a special prefix link to work off-campus. If the sample link in the list below is preceded by a red (prefix) indicator, it means that the database has already added that prefix to the link they provide. You can simply copy it without further modification (except when Linking in Laulima). In the interest of clarity, we're using (prefix) instead of showing the actual prefix in these examples.

In some databases, the link is not displayed properly if you are logged in while off-campus. If you are shown a link that begins with or contains "https://lccproxy.lib.hawaii.edu:####" with any number other than 2048 or 2443, please replace it with the database address as shown in the examples below. Please contact us for databases not listed.
