In order to share a link to an NYIT Library subscription resource you will need a permanent link. A permanent link will allow users both on-campus and off-campus to access the resource.

Step 1.
Locate the resource.


Step 2.
On the resource’s web page locate the Permanent Link / Permalink


 
Step 3.

If a permanent link is NOT available add the prefix http://arktos.nyit.edu/login?url= to the Web browser’s URL.

Example:

Prefix:
http://arktos.nyit.ed
u/login?url=

Web browser's URL:
https://meded-lwwhealthlibrary-com.arktos.nyit.edu/book.aspx?bookid=1988

Shareable URL:
http://arktos.nyit.edu/login?url=https://meded-lwwhealthlibrary-com.arktos.nyit.edu/book.aspx?bookid=1988

Please ensure that the URL string is 1 hyperlink (not two) or else the link will not work. When combining URLS cut and paste as unformatted text.
 

Step 4.
Test the hyperlink from off-campus to ensure that it works.
