How-to's

Share a persistent link if you want others to easily access an article off campus.

A persistent link, also know as a permalink or stable link, is a URL that connects directly to a full text article within a library licensed database. 

To create a persistent link, go to the library web page and search the title of the article you want to share, click on the title, then look for the permalink or link button usually on the right hand side of the page. Each database looks a little bit different, here's an example:

As a student or staff member of MHC you have access to articles, eBooks, and videos from online library databases. A list of databases is accessible through the "Database List" on the library's home page or by clicking here.

When you attempt to access electronic library materials from an off campus location, you will first be asked for your credentials. This is your 14 digit barcode number that can be found at the bottom of your student/staff id card. 

If you do not have a student ID card and don't know your student ID number you can find it online in the student Dashboard.

MHC staff and students have access to digital materials from other libraries through interlibrary loan. 

Search for the article you are interested in obtaining, you may have to broaden your search to include libraries worldwide for your items title to appear in your search results. You can do this on the left hand side of the library search page: 

Once you've found the title of the item you are interested in. click on it, you should see a "request item from another library" button halfway down the page, click on it and fill out the form that appears.

 

Once your request comes in it will be forwarded to you via email. If you have any questions please email illo@mhc.ab.ca.
