Finding and Creating Permalinks: Knovel Library

Permalinks in Knovel Library

As with all permalinks, you must first get to the specific item you want the permalink for.

To link to an entire book:

  1. Perform your search in Knovel Library and click the link for the specific book you want.
  2. Click the Citation button near the top of the page.
  3. Copy the URL that appears in the citation popup that appears (you may need to scroll down in the window to see the URL).
  4. In order for this URL to work for NU users off campus, you will need to add our proxy server info to the beginning of the URL: http://ezproxy.neu.edu/login?url= . For the example shown below, the full URL would be http://ezproxy.neu.edu/login?url=http://app.knovel.com/hotlink/toc/id:kpYCPDCECD/yaws-critical-property/yaws-critical-property.

To link to a specific page or chapter in the book:

  1. Click on the link for the page or chapter you want.
  2. Click on the gear icon that appears on the left side of the page, then click Create Citation.
  3. Copy the URL that appears in the citation popup that appears (you may need to scroll down in the window to see the URL).
  4. In order for the URL to work for NU users off campus, follow step 4 above.

Note: The capability to link directly to non-textual content such as data tables may not be available.
