Persistent Links in ebrary

Ebrary is a Library-licensed collection of 50,000+ ebooks. You can link to an entire book within ebrary, to a specific chapter or page number, or to a book that you have already saved to your ebrary bookshelf.

Linking to an entire book within ebrary:

You can locate books in ebrary through OskiCat or by searching ebrary directly. The URL in the address bar is the persistent link to your book.

Linking to a chapter or specific page within ebrary:

  1. Find the page you want to link directly to. The page numbering in ebrary documents is different from the page numbering in the book itself, so after you have found the correct page in the book, look in the top right-hand corner of the web page to see ebrary's page numbering information.

  2. You can add the page number to the URL in order to create a persistent link to that particular page. Be sure to choose the number in parentheses (ebrary's page number) instead of the number in the box (the printed book's page number).

  3. Add "&page=x" to the end of the book's URL in your browser's address bar (without quotes), where "x" is the desired page number.
