Creating a Direct/Persistent Link

To create a direct or persistent link you will need to know the the DOI or permanent URL of the book or article you want to link to. 

Once you have this information you can use this form to create a new direct link that will allow for off-campus access.
NOTE #1:
If your DOI or permanent URL already has one these prefixes, you do not need to complete the next step as the URL has already been formatted to allow for off-campus access:

NOTE #2:
If your DOI has the following prefix preceding the DOI number "", remove this prefix first and then proceed to the step below.




USask has a Copyright Coordinator to assist you. From their website:

"Copyright simply means, the right to copy. It gives the exclusive legal right to the author or creator of an original work to decide how or when that work is used. If you are not the author or creator of the work(s), you will need permission to use it"

The University of Saskatchewan has ended its agreement with Access Copyright August 31, 2011.

This means:

  • Course materials for the upcoming year need to be prepared before August 31, 2011.
  • Course material can be printed in the usual manner provided they are printed prior to August 31, 2011.


*You cannot post copies of copyrighted material online for your students, but you can post links to licenced materials purchased by the Library.

** If you would like to create online links to library-licenced materials for your students please see this guide to creating "Persistant Links" (I am available to help!).

Please see this Copyright Website for more information.

Confused?  Have copyright questions?  Can't find what you're looking for?  Contact the Copyright Coordinator at 966-8817 or for more information.
