How to get a permalink for a library record

You can get a "permalink" (a short and persistent URL) for individual items in UW Libraries Search. This is helpful for sharing your search results with others or easily getting back to an item later. Here's how to get a permalink: 

1. Use UW Libraries Search Page to locate your resource.

2. Click on the permalink icon. It is located on the right of the item, appearing as two links of a chain.
