The library will end its support of the EasyBib citation software after the current year.
As of 2016, the library encourages all users to adopt the Zotero software to capture your citations ... plus capture fulltext journal articles and web pages.
Zotero searches across all of your captured materials, including fulltext PDF journal articles and snapshots of web pages. Zotero will also integrate citations into your papers using their word processing bibliography connectors.
Use the Library's new EasyBib Citation Service to create, save, and export all your citations and bibliographies.
About Persistent or Permanent Links:
"Persistent Links" connect users directly to a library database or article by clicking a link embedded in a Web page. The link works every time you click on it and will not expire whether or not they are on the campus network.
Do not use the browser url; they do not work for persistent linking. Always look for "persistent link" or "permalink" in the article.
Consider using the Zotero software to capture your citations ... plus capture fulltext journal articles and web pages. You can then search your materials, and also integrate these citations into your papers using their connectors.
