Durable linking

You can usually create durable links to electronic documents with a few mouse clicks.

Documents with DOIs

If the document has a digital object identifier (DOI), create a durable link using the DOI linking widget.

Links to databases that support DOI-based linking are available through our online list.

Please note that DOIs only began to be issued in 2000 and the use of this system is still not universal.

Documents without DOIs

If there is no DOI for the document you require, please refer to the instructions below. Note that you can also create stable links to eReserve content.

Please contact the Library on 02 6773 2458 (extn 2458) for further assistance.
