Stable Linking Services

MSU Libraries understands that there is a multitude of educational resources available for use by your students, as well as varying formats and modes of access to the content. It can be difficult to determine if the proposed use of a third-party selection is copyright-compliant and legal.

Additionally, as the Library’s electronic collections and offerings grow in volume, we recognize an increased demand for Stable Links to e-content – the recommended way to provide your students with direct access to Library E-Resource content. We are offering our assistance to faculty and staff.
