How to create persistent links in BioOne

  1. Connect to the BioOne database. (Note: If you are off campus, you will need to login with your StarID and password. Off-campus access instructions.)
  2. Perform your search and choose a full-text article.
  3. Click on the "Full Text" link.
  4. Copy the URL in your browser address bar.
  5. Use the Proxy Link Converter to make the persistent link accessible from off campus to Normandale users or attach the following prefix: http://ndcproxy.mnpals.net/login?url=

If you will be posting the link to D2L Brightspace, please read about linking to library resources in D2L Brightspace.

Example:
http://ndcproxy.mnpals.net/login?url=http://www.bioone.org/doi/full/10.2193/0091-7648%282005%2933%5B411%3AWUOCWI%5D2.0.CO%3B2?prevSearch=%255BAllField%253A%2Bwaterbirds%255D&searchHistoryKey=&queryHash=97b798f9ef0d403822baf6d94663f666

Test! Copy and paste the new link into your browser address bar to make sure it works (remove any spaces in the link).
