  • If you find an article through Hannon Library Search (formerly known as the Catalog):
    • click on "View Online"
    • click the name of a database
    • try to find the permanent URL within that database
    • alternatively, you can click on the "Actions" drop down menu and get a permalink there
  • If you're using ProQuest and the article is available in full-text from ProQuest (i.e. you don't have to click on "Check SOU" to get it):
    • click on the article
    • click on the "Cite" tool on the right
    • copy the link provided in the citation
  • If you're using ProQuest and the article is available through a Check SOU link:
    • click through the prompts until you are at the article level
    • look for a permalink URL (this link must start with https://login.glacier.sou.edu/login?url= unless it is from a free journal)
  • If you're using Ebsco and the article is available in full-text from Ebsco (i.e. you don't have to click on "Find at SOU" to get it):
    • click on the title of the article from the list of the results
    • look for the permalink option on the right
  • If you're using Ebsco and the article is available through a Find at SOU link:
    • click through the prompts until you are at the article level
    • look for a permalink URL (this link must start with https://login.glacier.sou.edu/login?url= unless it is from a free journal)
  • If you're using Gale:
    • click on the title of the article from the list of results
    • click on "Bookmark" under the Tools to the right
    • copy and paste the URL
    • if the URL doesn't start with https://login.glacier.sou.edu/login?url= then you'll need to add this to the beginning (the prefix doesn't show if you get the URL while on campus)
  • If you want to find out whether we have a particular journal at SOU, please check Hannon Library Search.
