How do I save links to articles in ProQuest databases?



A permalink is the permanent "address" for the article and will take you there every time. 


When you are using OCLS databases, the link in your browser window changes each time you log in. If you save this URL or link, you will not be able to get back to the article. 


The link in your browser window is not the permalink





ProQuest databases click All OptionsTo copy a permalink to an article:

  • Click the All Options button.

  • A save options window appears. Click the link to copy.

  • Click the link, and it will automatically be copied. 

  • Paste (CRTL + V) it into a document to save it for later. 



Only authorized users can access an article through a permalink. Log into the myIWU portal before you click on the link. Or you will be directed to the myIWU login screen.
