Search EBSCO Discovery Service: Create/save a permanent link

A guide to use and best practices for TWU's discovery tool.

Why we need permanent links?

Faculty and students may need links to upload to a file or a shared drive for references. 

The results of the search may expire after a certain period of time and these links will no more be available. So we need permanent links to access the results for future use.  Persistent links are not always found in your browser window. Do not copy and paste the URL from the browser window of the selected resource unless directed to do so.
