Linking to Articles

Linking to Articles Accessible from the Hayden Memorial Library

Found the perfect article in a library database and want to share it with students in Canvas or on a personal class webpage?  Do this by creating a persistent link which will provide direct and stable access to the article. 

Persistent Links

A persistent link connects users directly to journal articles or other items in library databases. When accessing these articles from home, the user will be asked to authenticate with an active Citrus College network login before access to the article is allowed.
