I emailed search results from Gale and EBSCO to myself two weeks ago, and now the links don't work. What happened?
The links you copied expired. In the future, either copy the Permalink, or save the articles themselves.
To get the Permalink in EBSCO, conduct yoru search. Towards the top of the page, you will see a link that says, Alert, Save, Share. This will pull up a box with the persistent link. Copy and paste that.
In Gale, look for a link that says Bookmark. You can either copy and paste the link, or choose to email it.
