The resulting URL can also be shared with your UBC colleagues and students and embedded into other content, like Connect and Research Guides.

For best results, we recommend using a persistent URL, or PURL, with the link generator. A PURL is a link to a specific web page that remains stable over time. Many people don't know that some urls are "session-based" and only work for the duration of your search session. If you try to access a session-based url after you log-off, navigate away from the page and/or several hours later you will get an error message instead of the page you were expecting. To learn more, see our guide to Finding Persistent URLs.

If you do not wish to use the link generator tool above, you can paste the following prefix directly in front of your PURL (i.e. no spaces between the prefix and the PURL)
