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:2048” somewhere within the web address.
If the link provided does not include this string, add “http://www.liberty.edu:2048/login?url=“ to the front of the web address (e.g., http://search.ebsco.com would become http://www.liberty.edu:2048/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.
