When you want to share digital resources from the library's collections in an email message, in an electronic document, or with your class on Blackboard, you can use a direct link to the resource instead of uploading or sending the entire document.

Tip #1: Always use the permalink, or durable URL, for the item.
The URL that appears in your browser's address bar is only temporary, but each database provides a way to copy a stable link to a particular resource. Check out the examples below, or contact a librarian if you need help finding a permalink. We're happy to help!

Tip #2: Make sure the URL begins with our EZProxy prefix.
This allows members of the Hood community to access the material from anywhere—on or away from campus. The prefix is:

http://taurus.hood.edu:2048/login?url=

Example:

http://www.jstor.org/stable/2424413

becomes

http://taurus.hood.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/2424413
