Creating Persistent Links to IEEE Computer Science Digital Library

How to build a URL
The following information provides instructions for building URLs from the metadata
in the CSV and XML documents.

Template Legend
y=year (4 digits)
v=volume (0 if single volume for conference proceedings)
i=issue (magazines and transactions only)
c=catalog (conference proceedings only)
a=acronym
Acronym lookup for Magazines, Transactions and Proceedings


Journal Template
http://opac.ieeecomputersociety.org/opac?year=y&volume=v&issue=i&acronym=a

 

Journal Example
http://opac.ieeecomputersociety.org/opac?year=2004&volume=24&issue=4&acronym=micro

Final Important Step:
Access to the persistent link articles in IEEE Computer Science Digital Library 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 URL so that the Proxy Server authentication will be triggered when a student clicks on the link. Simply prepend the URL with the following: http://ezproxy.sju.edu/login?url=



Conference Proceedings Template

Conference Proceedings Example
http://opac.ieeecomputersociety.org/opac?year=2005&volume=0&catalog=2300&acronym=percomw
