A permalink is a link that allows users to retrieve resources for future use. Specifically, a permalink is a web address that will consistently point to a specific information source such as an ebook, an article, a record in the catalog, a video, or a database.  A permalink may also be referred to as a:

  • Bookmark URL
  • Document Link/URL
  • Resource Link
  • Persistent Link/URL
  • Record URL
  • Stable Link/URL
  • Static Link/URL

The URL from your browser's address bar is a session link that expires and will not allow you to access the resource again in the future.
