A permalink is a stable link to an eBook. Copying and pasting the URL from your browser's search bar is not stable and will not allow you to return to your book at a later date. The permalink feature in Novanet lets you retrieve articles or eBooks by clicking on the link.
Click on the title of the item you wish to link to. On the far right, under Cite/Email, click on Permalink.
Copy the URL provided.
But can I place a hold? There is no need to place holds on eBooks as they can be checked out by multiple parties at once.
