|Linking to Database Articles and Searches|
Would you like to know how to create a link from your course or personal web page to a particular article that you want your students to read? If this article is available online in ProQuest or EBSCOhost, you can.
Or would you like to be able to keep track of current research on a particular topic or author through a web page that requires no maintenance?
It is possible to create web links that will automatically recreate any search you do in any ProQuest or EBSCOhost database. The search will automatically be updated to include the most recent research on the topic. You don't have to do anything.
Here are three sample web pages that use this linking technology:
This tutorial covers step-by-step procedures to help faculty create permanent links to database articles and searches. Creating these links is not a simple procedure. In general, you can't copy the URL that's found at the top of the page in an article. It contains session specific information so the link will only work for a short period of time. Because of this, you need to locate and use the permanent links described in this tutorial.
