About Security and Copyright

It is not necessary to protect your web page with a password to avoid copyright infringement of these articles by unauthorized users. This has already been done for you. Typing the prefix string in step #8 below guarantees that any remote user who accesses your web page and clicks on the linked article will be directed to a WEB ACCESS MANAGEMENT (WAM) screen where they will be required to authenticate by typing in their NNU Library login information (their name and NNU ID#). This is the same process that takes place anytime a remote user tries to access one of the licensed resources to which the library has subscribed.

Steps to Link

  1. Select the database from the library web page at
  2. Conduct your search; mark the item you wish to link to.
  3. Click the blue "SAVE" button at top or bottom of EBSCO screen.

  5. Highlight and copy (CTRL-C) the URL given by EBSCO in the Persistent link to this record
  6. Go to your web page file in FrontPage, Typo3 or Angel; type the text you wish to link.
  7. Highlight text in FrontPage and right click. Choose "Hyperlink properties".
  8. Click OK, save, and preview in browser to make sure it's working.
