- General Info
You can generate direct links to full-text articles in many of the Library's journal databases. Online students and off-campus users can use these links to go directly to the article without having to log in to Off-Campus Access (EZproxy) first.
Note: Some databases, including Lexis/Nexis Academic, do not support this feature.
Some databases (examples below) have an option that creates persistent links for future access. These links will include “ezproxy.liberty.edu” somewhere within the web address.
If the link provided does not include this string, add “http://ezproxy.liberty.edu/login?url=“ to the front of the web address (e.g., http://search.ebsco.com would become http://ezproxy.liberty.edu/login?url=http://search.ebsco.com). This makes it a persistent link, which can be accessed even off-campus.
Persistent links cannot be created for articles found in Summon searches; however, a URL for a search results page in Summon can be used and shared to replicate the search when copied and pasted in the browser address bar.
Ebsco Persistent links already include the off-campus access information.
ProQuest databases now include proxied links as well.
