Stable URL: 

A stable url (or persistent link) is a link that connects a user to a particular item in a database or on the web. This database uses the doi system to create a stable link.

To link to a particular article, look for the line that says DOI:
Example: DOI: 10.1140/epjb/e2002-00277-7

To ensure off-campus access, include the proxy prefix and use the following url:
http://web2.trentu.ca:2048/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/

Example: http://web2.trentu.ca:2048/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1140/epjb/e2002-00277-7

Since this database also contains links to Get it! (on the Scholars Portal site) you can use the "Save Citation" data to create a link to the article. See the Embedding Links page.
