Persistent Links

A guide on how to create accessible and direct links to Gumberg Library resources.


JSTOR automatically provides a persistent link when you view an article.

Once you have completed your search, click the title of the article.

On the left side of the screen, you will see a stable URL beneath the title and publication information of the article. Copy the stable URL.

Navigate to the Open Athens Link Navigator and make certain you are using the Duquesne University site:

Paste the link into Canvas or wherever you would like to use it.


If you're confused about persistent links, please contact the library using Ask Gumberg.
