How to create persistent links in Academic OneFile (Gale)

  1. Connect to the Academic OneFile (Gale) 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 "Bookmark" icon in the upper right of the screen to display a persistent link or "Bookmark URL."
  5. Highlight and copy the URL.
    Note: This URL will work off campus despite not showing the proxy prefix. You do not have to add the proxy code.

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

Example:
http://link.galegroup.com/apps/doc/A11590790/EAIM?u=mnanorman&sid=EAIM&xid=651afe29

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