How Do I Link to e-Resources?

Introduction

You need to...
Provide links to articles, e-Resources and Library Catalogue records in Avenue and other course Web pages that are stable over time and will work both on and off campus.

The Problem: 
Adding links the usual way (copying and pasting the URL that appears in your browser) doesn't always work since those URLs often contain variables that change every time the article or e-Resource is accessed. Also, the URLs you copy from your browser do not contain the code necessary to make off-campus access possible.

The Solution: 
Use Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) or Persistent URLs and the information contained on these pages to create links that work!
