Sadly, no. The links that appear in your browser toolbar when viewing EBSCO articles or search pages are not durable URLs, they are temporary URL's generated by the database and will not link to any actual content. They do not include any information that could identify a specific article.

This is very common with databases and that is why many provide a permalink option--that is the only way to send a link that will go to an article. From the permalink, anyone can access the article, eBook or search result that you want to share that is either on campus or has a current COM ID.

Here's how to get a permalink for the article:

You can grab the permalink to an article when you are viewing the detailed record (shown below) or when viewing the actual article. From the tools on the hand side of the page, clink on the  permalink icon  Permalink Iconto open a permalink window above the record or article (or eBook) and copy it so that you email or create a link in a web page.

Example: "Listening to the Voices": Public and Fictional Language in Faulkner.
