The permalink allows you to link to the resource record within the library catalog.
If the student does not need to see the ebook record, you can link directly into the ebook itself.
Does your link begin with http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= ? If not, here's how to fix the issue:
A persistent link (permalink) is a direct URL that will remain stable over time and is found within the resource record. You typically DO NOT use the URL found in the address bar at the top of your browser.
A proxy link is code that allows off campus access to library resources and is added before the persistent link to the resource (if not automatically included). The library's proxy code looks like: http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= ...
If your link does not start with the proxy code, add that code to the front of the URL and check the new link in a browser. If you need any help adding the proxy code, check out the link helper page or contact your library liaison!
