Instead, look for a link within the identifying record for the article (where the title, author, and source information is given). This may be listed under "tools" (as in the Ebsco databases) and referred to as a:
- PURL, or a Persistent URL
- Document URL
Sometimes the permalink is located all the way at the bottom of the screen, at the very end of the article. The ProQuest databases are in this category (ABI-Inform, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe), as well as the Gale databases (Academic Onefile, Global Issues in Context, Opposing Viewpoints in Context, Biography in Context, Gale Virtual Reference.)
Also, if you find a book in the library's catalog, the permanent links are labeled as "Link to this record." Right clicking on the link will give the option to copy the link location.
