Electronic Resources Troubleshooting

Linking to Resources

Adding an electronic resource link to Canvas, inside a research paper, syllabi, or other documents? Copying and pasting links from the address bar may work temporarily, but these links are likely to not be usable later. Make sure your links are permanent! Permalinks—also known as persistent, or durable—allow consistent access to resources on and off campus.

To ensure that off-campus access to FSU resources will work, our OpenAthens redirector string must be included in the URL (except Ebsco, ProQuest, Gale, and Kanopy which use a token embedded within URLs). Copy and prefix the following to your URL: https://go.openathens.net/redirector/fsu.edu?url=

Permalinks found on the FSU Libraries' websites do not need the redirector.
