Copyright & Fair Use: How to Share Journals

Test Your Permalink

Test to ensure your link is actually a permalink

The best way to ensure that your links are actually permalinks is to check them on a different computer than the one you created them on.  You can also try testing them again on the same computer at least a day or two later, but a different computer is the best test. 

For additional inforation about troubleshooting article and ebook access problems, see our Resource Discovery Guide Troubleshooting page.
