Articles

Using a DOI to link to articles

Many databases use a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to create stable links to articles. Databases using DOIs include:

  • ScienceDirect
  • SpringerLink
  • Wiley Online

To create a stable link:

  1. Locate the DOI for the article.

  2. Use the form below. Make sure you use the DOI only, not the full URL.

Linking to articles without DOIs

Look for terms like 'Permalink', 'Document URL', and 'Bookmark'.

  1. Locate the stable link.
  2. Use the form below.

Some databases require a slightly different technique

AustLII

AustLII is a free legal database. You do not need to use the above form.

Linking to an article, journal, case or Act:

  • Browse to locate the item you want to link to
  • Open the item
  • Copy the URL from your browser.

Linking to a section of an Act:

  • Browse to locate the Act you want to link to
  • Open the Act
  • From the table of provisions, click on the section you want to link to
  • Copy the URL from your browser.

Note: Currency of legislation on AustLII can not be guaranteed. See the Law Library Resource Guide for links to authorised sources.

e-books

Linking to e-books

It is a good practice to only link to owned e-books - this will ensure your link is permanent!

There are two ways to link to an e-book:

Link directly to the e-book

Once you've found an e-book, copy the link of the provider's name.

The link will already have the Ezproxy prefix, e.g.: http://ezproxy.deakin.edu.au/login?url=http://deakin.eblib.com.au/patron/FullRecord.aspx?p=510635 and is ready to share in CloudDeakin, via email, etc.

Link to the record in the Catalogue

The catalogue record displays important licensing and usage information, which should be viewed before going to the e-book.

  1. Once you've found an e-book, click the title to see full details
  2. Copy the link labelled 'Bookmark this record'

This is a stable URL ready to use in CloudDeakin or alternative platforms.

Some databases, such as EBL, allow linking directly to chapters. This information can be found on the e-book help page.

For further information and advice contact your Liaison Librarian.

Streaming videos

Link to videos from the library

Using Library Search

Once you've found a streaming video, copy the link from the provider's name.

Using the Catalogue

Once you've found a streaming video, click 'Available Online' and copy the link from the provider's name.

In a database

You may need to use the following tool to generate a stable link to streaming video resources.

Informit EduTV example:

  1. Once you've found a streaming video, click the envelope image next to 'Share Video'
  2. Copy the link from the email template and paste into the Stable link form below.

Embed videos into CloudDeakin

Some providers such as Kanopy allow for embedding. See the streaming video help page.

For further information and advice contact your Liaison Librarian.

Instructions on embedding in CloudDeakin using the HTML editor are available from CloudDeakin Support.
