Creating Persistent Links to Ovid Articles

Due to space limitations, URLs in the following examples may display across multiple lines, even though they are just individual, long URLs.

  1. Use Ovid to access the article to which you want to link.

  2. Click into the Ovid Full Text of the article.
  3. Just above the article, look for a link titled "Email Jumpstart" and click it.

  4. The top of the page should display something like:

    Your Jumpstart URL is: http://gateway.ovid.com/ovidweb.cgi?T=JS&NEWS=N&PAGE=fulltext&AN=0000012...

  5. To create a link that will work both on-campus and off-campus, take the jumpstart link and insert:

    http://libproxy.estrellamountain.edu/login?url=

    in front of it to create a persistent link that looks similar to:

    http://libproxy.estrellamountain.edu/login?url=http://gateway.ovid.com/o...
