  • Search for a topic
  • Choose the title of an article to connect to the full record

Off-Campus Link Generator

Use the Off-Campus Link Generator to get stable and sharable links to items within library databases for adding to Moodle or course syllabi.

Step 1. Obtain a persistent link to an item.

Step 2. Paste your persistent URL here. (Note: URL must start with http:// or https://)
 
Step 3. Choose the "Create Link" button below
 
Step 4. Copy the converted link (press Ctrl + C)

Your off-campus link is ready to be shared!

Note: this link generator works by adding the off-campus prefix (https://login.ezproxy-eres.up.edu/login?url= ) to the beginning of the URL.
