Once an individual item (article, book, catalog reserve list, etc.) is identified from a database subscribed to by UT Arlington, it is possible to create a link to that specific reference without having to redo the entire search. This "persistent URL" is useful for sending a link to an interesting article via email to other people associated with UT Arlington or for creating a specific bibliography for a UT Arlington group.
These manipulated links will only work if the appropriate username/password is supplied; People without UT Arlington NetID usernames and passwords will NOT be able to access these resources. Consider, when creating handouts, including a note indicating the type of required username/password, as shown in the examples provided.
Make sure none of these edited links have spaces accidentally included. Always check to make sure the link works.
Some of the links become so long that many email systems wrap them incorrectly. Consider instead supplying these bibliographic links within an attached document or use TINYURL (see "Cool Trick" tab.)
