A persistent link is a URL that allows users to link directly to an online article, document, book, etc. and allows students to access the MSU Library's electronic subscriptions.
Persistent links are also known as durable links, stable links, or permalinks.
Persistent links can be placed within Canvas, course syllabi, and reading lists.
EZProxy Prepend for Montclair State University:
When you save links in Canvas, they have to be both persistent and proxied in order to take you back to the same place again from on or off campus.
Not all persistent URLs are proxied URLs. Proxying a URL prompts off-campus users for a login.
Persistent URL from JSTOR
(will only work from on campus):
Proxied persistent url from JSTOR
(will work from on or off campus):
Some databases automatically format persistent urls as proxied, but if not, you can set them up yourself by adding
to the front of the URL, as in the example above. Having done this, the URL should prompt you for your MSU Netid login if you are off campus.
