To link to a specific article in our licensed databases, use a persistent link with the PSU proxy (a direct and stable link that includes PSU authentication). Persistent and proxied links are necessary because our databases are only accessible to Portland State affiliates.
This type of article link helps instructors remain in compliance with our database licenses and copyright law by linking to the article, rather than copying or uploading the article.
Important note regarding adding links to D2L: Article links in D2L need to open within D2L. Do not select "Open in new window".

2: Make a Proxied Database URL:
The proxy prefix should be part of all library article and database URLs. This prefix allows PSU students, faculty, and staff with valid Odin accounts access to the content.
Simply copy and paste a persistent URL from any of our databases into this box, then click "Create Link!". The box will display the new, proxied URL. Copy this URL and paste as needed (into a D2L course, email, etc.).
