Business Insights: Essentials

How to create persistent links in Business Insights: Essentials

  1. Connect to the Business Insights: Essentials 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 the article title to view the full-text article.
  4. Click the "Share" icon in the upper right of the screen to display a persistent link or "Bookmark URL."
  5. Copy the URL.
    Note: This URL already includes the proxy prefix and provides off-campus access to Normandale users.

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://bi.galegroup.com/essentials/article/GALE%7CA498315153/1f33420a5da8f707bf6d9a2238493e2b?u=mnanorman

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