Copying or bookmarking the URL at the top of your browser won’t save the page. The URL at the top of the page is specific to your search session and won't work if you try to use it later.
To avoid this issue every item has a Permalink--aka a permanent link.
Permalinks are links that do not expire. These links allow you to save and access content later. As long as the content is available within the database the Permalink will work.
When using saved Permalinks, you may be prompted to log in. If prompted, you will need to enter your STLCOP username and password. Once logged in, you should be able to access the item.
To save items in folders, you must first create and be signed in to a personal EBSCO account.
Anything saved to a folder when not logged into a personal EBSCO account will disappear after 2 hours. If this happens, neither you or the library has a way to access those searches or bring back articles in folders.
When logged into your personal account, you can save items from both the search results page and from an individual item page.
You can store an unlimited number of items in your personal folder; however, there may be limits on the number of items you can email, print or save at one time from your folder.
Click on the folder icon in the Discovery menu bar at the top of the screen to go to your folder--from there you can view all of your saved items.
Permalinks are not just for articles, they can also be used to save and re-run a search. These links can also be saved in your EBSCO account.
