Using OneSearch to GrabĀ Permalinks

Here is an easy "work around" for grabbing OpenAthens links from within OneSearch.

  1. Find your title.
  2. Open the bibliographic record
  3. Click on the Share Link to Book button.
  4. Post that.

Your students will be taken to OneSearch where they will see the bibliographic record for their resource. They can then click on the Read Online button.

If off campus, they will be asked to log in.
