For most databases and our online catalog, copying the information in your URL address bar will not lead you back to the article, so you need to look for the permalink, an unchanging link to the item. 

If you have found the item in our Online Catalog, click on the title to see the record for the item, and click the Permalink icon in the Options section in the middle of the page. Then, click "copy the permalink to the clipboard" and paste it into your document. 

If the article is in an Ebscohost database such as Academic Search Premier, click the article title, then click Permalink on the lower right side of the page, in the Tools panel. The permalink will appear near the top of the page.

In a ProQuest database such as ABI/Inform, click the title of the article, then click the Copy URL icon in the upper right corner. 

For databases from other vendors, you can usually find the permalink by clicking the item title and looking for a link icon. If you're unsure, use our Ask a Librarian live chat, email refserv@fhsu.edu, or call 785-693-6180.
