What you are asking is how to form a permanent link to an article. A permanent link lets you or someone else view the article later. It's different from session links that 'expire' after the browser session ends (these links are in the browser URL bar and often include the word 'sessmgr').

The easiest way to obtain a permanent URL is to see if your article is available in Search Everything @ BU (or any other EBSCOhost database). Once you've found the article in a database, click on the article title and then click on the link icon (for the 'Permalink') at the right and copy and save it for later use:

Other databases may be more complicated, so ask a librarian for assistance, through the Ask Us service.
