How to Post Database Journal Articles or eBook URLs to VCamp.

Persistent URLs, stable links, or durable links are Internet addresses that remain constant.  Most databases provide these links so that full-text articles, e-books (chapters and pages) can be posted in course management systems such as Vcamp or to email.  Because most are paid-for subscription databases with license restriction, they are not freely available to the public; therefore, proper linking of URLs is necessary for reposting for educational purposes.  All of the FGL databases are properly licensed for reposting to include proxy prefix:

The proxy server address must be attached to the beginning of the database-provided persistent URL:  http://eagle.wbcoll.edu:2048/login?url=

Add the above Proxy Address directly to the persistent URL when pasting to your post in Vcamp or other document. 

Persistent URLs are provided by EBSCOHost, ProQuest, Gale, and JSTOR in the record detail.  Do not use the URL in the address bar!   The persistent or stable URL may be founder under “cite” or permanent URL links.  JSTOR provides the stable URL under the Title.
