Proquest Publication Page Links

Unfortunately, Proquest does not have stable Publication Information Page URL's.  What you can do is use the URL as listed when you go to a publication information page and edit it. Do not use the complete URL as some of the information in that URL is session specific and would need to be removed before you could use the URL to link with.

For example: 

  • The Publication Information page for the New York Times, Late Edition (East Coast) will have a URL similar to the following when you first go to it:

  • Only use the highlighted portion below:

New York Times, Late Edition (East Coast)

  • And include the proxy prefix for remote access:

New York Times, Late Edition (East Coast)

1. Find the article you wish to link to and click on the title.

2. Scroll to the bottom of the article to locate the URL.

3. Copy the URL.

4. Paste the URL into Word or Notepad. Add the Add the prefix:
to the beginning of the URL. This will ensure students can access the article from off-campus.

5. Copy the new URL (with prefix).

Step 1. Find an article you want to save or share.

Step 2. Click on the article.

Step 3. Click on the Permalink button.

Step 4. Copy the URL in the Permalink bar. Use as is!
