Databases can be tricky. When you are looking at an article in a database, the URL (or link) that you see in your browser's address bar is only active for a short period of time. This means if you save the link and try to return to the article the next day, you will see an error. So, each database has a "permalink" feature built in - this is the only link that will allow you to return to the article at a later time. 

You may have to search around a bit to find it, and, remember, librarians are standing by to help! Sometimes, there is a permalink button that, when clicked, will open a frame containing your link. Other times, the permalink may live in the citation provided by the database. Keep an eye out for the link icon  for permalinks.

Here are a few examples of where to find permalinks in our databases:
