Question: I copied the URL for an article, but when I click on it, it doesn't work.

Answer:

Articles and eBooks in Drake's subscription databases often have URLs that contain unique session information. When you copy those URLs from the browser's address bar and use them later, they don't work.

Many databases provide persistent links--sometimes called stable URLs or permalinks--for their content. Visit our page on persistent links for help on how to find and use them.
