Bookmarklet for Electronic Permalinks

Instructors often need to give links as part of course material. Such links should be permanent and work for students both on and off campus.
If instructors do not create a permalink, off campus students cannot access the resources from the library databases as they will not be authenticated.

Instructors can save this JavaScript bookmarklet to their browser bookmark/favorites bar. Then when they are in an e-resource webpage, they can click the bookmarklet and it gives them the permalink ready to copy and paste.

It works on the following:

  • DOIs and handles
  • Voyager, Horizon, or Primo records
  • ebrary books / pages
  • ProQuest articles
  • Wikipedia articles
  • WordPress pages

The code is available on GitHub.
