Linking to Articles from Moodle

To link to electronic articles from Moodle, you will need to create a stable URL that does not change over time. Such URL’s are often called persistent links, but they are also known as permanent links, permalinks, durable links, stable links, or PURLS (Persistent Uniform Resource Locators).

Persistent Links connect users directly to a library database or an electronic journal article, and since no copying is involved, using them is one of the simplest methods of including high quality resources in Moodle websites, syllabi, documents, or emails.

For step-by-step instructions on creating persistent links in selected article databases, please refer to the table below.
