Access databases by clicking on them from the library website, which will serve as your portal to all content provided by the libraries.

Permalinks, or permanent links, ensure that someone will go to the webpage, database, article, or library record that you intend for them to visit. It's safer to copy the permalink than the URL in the address bar because address bar URLs can change whereas permalinks do not.
