Creating Permanent Links to York Libraries’ Resources

Persistent links (aka permalinks) are stable links that make it easier for the York University community to access OMNI records, e-articles, e-books and other scholarly content. These links facilitate access to subscribed resources via York’s proxy server and thus provide seamless authentication when off-campus. These links can easily be used in your Moodle course pages and other online student resources.
