New: Persistent URLs for the Catalog
Now you can have shorter catalog urls that will always work! If you've ever tried to copy & paste a 3-line catalog url and worried that it might fail, you'll enjoy the newest feature on both the Case Catalog & OhioLINK Central Catalog. Instead of a 3 line address, the url is likely to be 3x shorter:
- Search a catalog record you want to save, send, or reuse later.
- Click on the title & scroll down to see all details (series, subject terms, call numbers, ISBN, etc.)
- *Find the "Persistent link to this title" url: Case Catalog—on the left side under the title/publication line; OhioLINK Catalog—at the bottom-left of the record's details.
So, instead of trying to share a catalog search record like this:
...just click "Peristent link" to share with friends & students a short, always dependable url in emails, handouts, library reserves, etc: http://olc1.ohiolink.edu/record=b26138623~S0
