Persistent Links

Persistent Links allow users to retrieve specific EBSCOhost articles, journals, publications and searches by clicking on a link embedded in a web site. They are dedicated URLs that do not change. You can use them within your teaching materials, corporate portals (e.g. SharePoint), Learning Management Systems (LMS), online marketing literature, email or any other web-based file or application. Use the examples below to create your own persistent links.
