Using library materials in online classes: EBSCO Databases & MPC OneSearch

Overview

We purchase the marjority of our full-text resources from EBSCO. They provide a reliable and simple way to link to articles or other resources. The key is to use a “PERMALINK”.

Use the steps below to get the permalink, then add it as an external link in MPC Online!

Getting a permalink

1. From within any of our EBSCO-brand databases or Discovery Search, find the materials you are looking for. Click on the title of the desired full-text article/ebook:



2. Click on "Permalink"



 

3. The permalink will show up in a box right above the title. Copy the entire link to use.



* To link directly to the full-text, click on the full-text first, then click on "permalink" to retrieve a link that leads directly to the full-text.

EBSCO permalinks should work both on and off-campus, but to be sure, you can always run it through the URL Checker/Converter available here.
