Instructions for creating persistent links from MCPHS Library resources

From a Database

On this page you'll find step-by-step instructions and examples are given for getting persistent links in databases from EBSCO, Gale, and Nexis Uni.

We subscribe to multiple databases through EBSCO and Gale; Nexis Uni is a standalone database. To see all our databases from any given vendor/provider, go to the A-Z Database list and limit by vendor/provider.
