Perma will visit the web page selected and create a record of the contents of that page. When Perma finishes processing the request, the Perma Record will appear and the user will see a preserved page similar to below (you should review the Perma Record to confirm that it displays correctly).
The Perma Link for your preserved page will now appear in the address bar of your browser (as well in the Perma Record).
Now you can just cut & paste your new Perma Link in place of the old link or along with the old link...and know that it is permanent!
Many of the library's subscription databases provide the ability to create persistent links - also called stable URLs - to full-text articles. By following these links, a user is taken directly to the article. These persistent links are created in different ways, depending on the database. These links can be made available from a Classes LMS course page, a Discussion Board post, or from a web page. You must use our Persistent Link Builder to make these links work from off-campus.
This video demonstrates this process: https://youtu.be/S0IV3WqU8l0
For example - Here is a link to a full-text article in the Academic Search Premier database from Ebsco that has been processed using the Persistent Link Builder:
