How to create persistent links in CINAHL Plus

  1. Connect to the CINAHL Plus 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 citation and abstract page.
  4. Click the "Permalink" to display the persistent link.
  5. Copy URL.
    Note: The proxy prefix is included, and the URL can be used to access the article from off campus.

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


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