Troubleshooting library e-resources

Tips for accessing Camosun Library e-resources such as e-journals, e-books, databases, streaming videos on or off campus.

Permalinks in JSTOR

The JSTOR database provides stable URLs for specific articles or journals. If you want to access the article off campus, be sure to choose the Remote Access URL. It will begin with Camosun's proxy prefix.

For example:

https://libsecure.camosun.bc.ca:2443/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/41416670  

JSTOR remote access link, permalink

About permalinks

About permalinks

Permalinks (also called persistent links or stable URLs) point to specific articles, journals, ebooks, or search results within library research databases. They allow authorized users to access licensed resources on or off campus. Permalinks can be used within teaching materials, SharePoint, D2L, email or reference lists.

Basic permalink structure

[Camosun proxy prefix] + [database URL] + [unique resource ID or search string]

Example

https://libsecure.camosun.bc.ca:2443/login?url=https://canadacommons.ca/artifacts/1874020/spotted-owls/2623017/

*Not all databases provide persistent links in the correct format. Be sure to TEST permalinks on and off campus before sharing them!  Please contact the library if you have questions.
