Linking to Library Resources

Create shareable links to library databases and resources.

Link to a Result List

To create a shareable link to a specific list of results in any ProQuest database, open the database using the link on the Libraries' A-Z Database List, conduct your search, then:

  1. From the list of results, click Save search/alert in the upper right-hand corner of the result list.
  2. Click Get search link.
  3. Copy the search link in the popup window.
  4. Note the expiration date of the search link before closing the popup window.

Use the search link to share or create a new link to the result list.

 

Notes: Do not copy the URL that appears in the address bar of your browser to create or share a link to the result list. ProQuest search links expire one year after you obtain the link. Searches may be saved to a personal account, but doing so will not provide you with a permanent shareable link for the search.

First, from the list of results, click "Save search/alert". Second, click "Get search link". Third, copy the search link in the popup window. Fourth, note the expiration date of the search link before closing the popup window.
