If you copy a database link from your Internet browser on Moodle, that link will eventually stop working because it is a dynamic, non-static link. To eliminate this problem, most database companies now offer persistent links for their articles. Persistent links (also known as persistent URLs) are stable links that will consistently take students to a particular full-text article in a library database. If the student is off campus she or he will be asked to authenticate themselves via Salem - they should use their MySalem username and password.
Need help with a persistent link in a particular library database? Contact the Discovery & Delivery Librarian, Mary Abernathy at email@example.com and/or (336) 917-5436.
