LUBsearch & Electronic Resources


LUBsearch Discovery and ePublications use web sessions, which means you can't reuse the link from your browsers' URL field (you can't copy and share the link with someone, since it won't work once the session has run out). In order to share links to searches and/or records, you have to create a permalink.

To create a permalink for a search, click Share in the top right corner of the result list (copy the link):
