Linking to OhioLINK Resources
On this Page...
Please note: it's not possible to link directly to articles from LexisNexis Academic or SIRS, but the databases can be accessed from off-campus.
When you find a full-text article in an EBSCO database that you want to share with a Cincinnati State affiliate, you can create a link to the article record so that the person you are sharing it with can open the article from on or off-campus.
Step 1: In the article's full record, click the link that says "Permalink", located in the right column of the page (see picture below).
Step 2: A dialogue box will open above the article title. Copy the url that is in the box (see picture below).
Step 3: Copy the library's proxy (below) & put it in FRONT of the url you copied from EBSCO.
- Copy this complete proxy url: http://ezproxy1.cincinnatistate.edu:2048/login?url=
- if you copied this permalink from EBSCO: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=64171124&site=ehost-live
- you would add this to the front of it http://ezproxy1.cincinnatistate.edu:2048/login?url=
- which would make the complete link you would share this: http://ezproxy1.cincinnatistate.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=64171124&site=ehost-live .
Electronic Journal Center:
Sometimes the "FindIT" button will take you to an article that is only available full-text in OhioLINK's Electronic Journal Center, the EJC. To share the link to the article, you need to be on the article record page that has both the abstract & the .pdf icon for the article. Simply copy the url that is shown in your browser's address bar & you will have a link that will work both on & off campus. Please note: if you're working off-campus, you'll need to authenticate through OhioLINK using your name & 7 digit Cincinnati State ID.
