Create Stable Links to Library Resources

How to create permalinks to the Library's resources.

Oxford English Dictionary (OED)

  1. Find the item and click on the entry.
  2. The URL in the browser bar is the stable link. Copy the URL.
  3. Delete the section .ezcentennial.ocls.ca from the middle of the link, if present.
  4. Replace the hypens/dashes in the domain name with periods/dots, e.g. www-oed-com becomes www.oed.com
  5. If your students will be accessing the item from off-campus, add this prefix to your URL: http://ra.ocls.ca/ra/login.aspx?inst=centennial&url=

Example:
For the item, "college, n.",
the stable URL is: https://www.oed.com/view/Entry/36298
the link on your web page for on- and off-campus access is: http://ra.ocls.ca/ra/login.aspx?inst=centennial&url=https://www.oed.com/view/Entry/36298
