Q. What is a permalink and why should I use one?


A permalink, also known as a persistent link, durable link, or stable link, is a URL that connects directly to a specific library resource. Unlike many URLs, a permalink is designed to not break.

We encourage you to use permalinks when sharing library resources on Canvas, syllabi, reading lists, etc.

You can easily find a permalink for any resource in OneSearch:
