Have you ever found a really good article in, say, PubMed that you want to send to a friend or colleague immediately? Up till now it hasn't always been straightforward.
Click here for a brief screencast on how to create a permanent link to share an online article.
If you send the URL of an online article you've just read to a colleague, the link may or may not work an hour from now or the next day. To ensure that you're sending a link that will always work, you need a durable link, commonly called a "permalink."
As shown in the red box above,the University of Manitoba Libraries now provides a handy permalink for sharing online articles. You'll find it on the same Article Linker page that pops up when you click on the Get It @ UML button.
