Creating Persistent Links to JSTOR
Follow these 4 simple steps to create Persistent Links to JSTOR resources:
  1. Search JSTOR and find the article of interest from the results list.
  2. Click on the link for Article Information.
  3. In the Bibligraphic Info tab, and under the area labeled Citation, you will find the "Stable URL" --- copy this.
  4. Final Important Step:
    Access to the persistent link articles in JSTOR 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 an article in JSTOR:

1. Search JSTOR and find the article of interest.

2. Click on the link for the Article Information.
