- Do not copy-paste from your web browser address bar (technical details below).
- Do not create links to the results of a search.
- To share a single link, right-click or ctrl-click the link and choose copy link address.
- To share from within a database, use a database's 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 replace it with a disposable, short-lived URL that is locked to only your computer and breaks when shared.
- If your computer/tablet/phone is located on a TTUHSC campus or connected to the TTUHSC VPN, your web browser will discard the library's proxy prefix when you click the original link, breaking the link for your off-campus students.
