Creating Persistent Links to Gale Resources
Follow these 4 simple steps to create Persistent Links to Gale resources:
  1. Search the Gale resource for the article of interest.
  2. Click on the InfoMark icon Gale InfoMark at the top of the page.
  3. Copy the URL that appears in the InfoMark pop-up box. Make sure that you copy the entire URL--they can be quite long.
  4. Final Important Step:
    Access to the persistent link articles in EBSCOhost is restricted to currently registered SJU students, faculty and staff.  SJU users on campus will require no additional validation.  However, faculty who use these links in their Blackboard site, eCollege site or on their syllabus MUST alter the link so that the Proxy Server authentication will be triggered when a student clicks on the link.
    Simply prepend the link with the following: http://ezproxy.sju.edu/login?url=

For example, to create a persistent link to the encyclopedia entry for "Reading Disabilities" in the Encyclopedia of Education (part of the Gale Virtual Reference Library)
1. Search the Encyclopedia of Education and find the article of interest.

2. Click on the InfoMark icon Gale InfoMark at the top of the page .
