A permalink (or persistent URL) is a stable web address that will not change over time. Depending on the database, you will either need to locate the permalink (also called: document url, record url, etc.) or convert the URL using the VCCS URL Conversion Tool. In some cases, you will need to do a little of both. The locations and "exceptions" that require additional instructions to convert the URL are listed below.
NOTE: This list is updated as we learn of changes or new "exceptions". Since we may be unaware of a change, please contact your Campus Library if you are having trouble locating the permalink or converting the URL.
The following list of databases provide platform specific persistent links that do not require conversion.
The following list of databases are known exceptions that require either an extra step(s) before conversion or a different proxy prefix. Additionally, these links may break if the database vendor makes changes to their URL configuration. It is recommended that you test these links regularly to ensure they are working properly.
