Most library databases require a special URL that contains the institution’s account information. If you want to link to eBooks, eBook chapters, articles, or videos in library databases, you’ll need to use the permalink or bookmark that the database provides for you.
If you’re not sure what database the content is coming from, look at the URL: it will include words like ebsco, gale, jstor, ovid etc… to indicate which database houses the material. Permalinks and bookmarks are often in the same menu as the Database Citation Tools.

From the publication record page, click on “Share” to link to that publication page. From here you can also opt to “Search within this publication.”
