Some library databases do have the ability to create a link that you'll be able to use later. Here's some that will allow it:

  • EBSCO databases (like Academic Search Premier, for example) have a link called "permalink" that will create a usable link for you.
  • Gale has the "Bookmark" link or if you create a link from off campus in a Gale database (like Academic OneFile, for example), then you can use it again off campus.

Unfortunately, this isn't an option for most databases. You’ll be better off using the citation for your article. You can use the "cite" button found in most databases. Unfortunately the generated citations are not always accurate so you need to be familiar with what a proper APA citation looks like. Check out the library's APA guide for more information.
