Enhance Your Courses with Library Resources

Step by step instructions for grabbing durable links so you can share articles, eBooks, streaming video and more.

Share eBooks, Searches, Topics

Link to Gale eBooks so that they can be accessed on or off campus. Specific documents may be eBooks, portions of an eBook, searches or topics. Look for Get Link to get the durable link. 

Share articles, images, videos, audio, primary sources and more. 

  1. The quickest way to get the durable link in Gale databases is to select Get Link option on the tool bar near the top of the page.
  2. Copy the durable URL from the box that pops up.

Off Campus Access Where EZProxy Prefix Not Provided

To provide off campus access, you'll need to add a prefix in front of the link so that COM students, faculty and staff can login with their COM account to see the article.

  1. The quickest way to get the durable link in Gale databases is to select Get Link option on the tool bar near the top of the page. Copy the durable URL from the box that pops up.
  2. If you want to make the resource accessible off campus (users will need to have a COM account to log in), add the EZProxy prefix directly in front of the bookmark URL with no spaces: https://comlib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=

A link accessible off campus should look like this: https://comlib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://link.gale.com/apps/doc/A344602980/OVIC?u=txshracd2496&sid=OVIC&xid=818686f9
