Persistent Links to Items in the Library Catalogue

Are you interested in regularly returning to a particcular item listed in the library catalogue, or may be you wish to refer someone else to the resource?

There is an easy way to do this, using a persistent link to the item.

Each ECU Library catalogue record has an image listed on the right side titled: Further information

The last option provides a live link to the Persistent link to this item .
Clicking on the link takes you to a URL that can be copied and used for ongoing access to the item.

For example http://library.ecu.edu.au/record=b1392120~S7 is the persistent link for the ISI Web of Science database
