How to create persistent links in ProQuest News & Newspapers

  1. Connect to the ProQuest News & Newspapers. (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 title of the article.
  4. Select the Abstract/Details tab and scroll to the bottom of the page (or hit the "End" key).
  5. Locate the "Document URL" and copy it.
    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=https://search.proquest.com/docview/266544661?accountid=4885

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