- Copy-paste from your web browser address bar (technical details below).
- Create links to the results of a search.
- Right-click or CTRL + click an existing link and choose copy link address.
- To share links or pages from databases, use the built-in sharing tool, for example:
- Instruct students to perform searches for themselves.
- For additional help, contact a TTUHSC reference librarian
Technical Details - why you should never copy-paste from your address bar:
- Many vendors (e.g. Ovid and EBSCO) discard the original shareable link you clicked and place in your address bar a disposable, short-lived URL that is locked to only your computer and is unsuitable for sharing.
- If your computer is located on a TTUHSC campus, your web browser will discard the library's proxy prefix (required for your off-campus students) when you click the original link.
