This article demonstrates how to get a permanent, shareable link from Ebook Central. For more information and instructions for other platforms see: Sharing links to e-resources

For e-books on Ebook Central, you’ll find a “Share Link to Book” option on the left sidebar of the main page for the e-book, below the “Read” and “Download” buttons.

This will open a pop-up window where you can copy and paste the link.

It's also possible to get a link directly to any page within the e-book. To do so, you would first click "Read Online", then go to the page you want, and finally click the small link icon in the toolbar across the top of the page:

Ebook Central links automatically route through our proxy server for off-campus users regardless of whether “ezproxy.gvsu.edu” is in the URL. There's no need to adjust the link as copied from the pop-up window.
