How do I create a permalink for a CQ Researcher Report?
I am using the Document URL found at the bottom of the report, but it isn't letting me see the full report when I am off-campus. What do I do?
CQ Researcher works a little differently than some of our other databases, so there are two different ways to make sure you have a good permalink that will work both on-campus and off-campus.
From off-campus: You can use the URL found in the Address Bar for the report
- You will know that you have correct URL because the beginning of it will include “library-cqpress-com.ezproxy.frederick.edu” which is letting CQ Researcher know you are coming from FCC.
- You must use the off-campus link because when you go to a database from off-campus it runs through our authentication system Ezproxy, which causes the URL to change. When on-campus, the authentication system is by-passed and the URL won't include any of the necessary identifying information for FCC.
From On-Campus: You will need to add the Ezproxy prefix to the Document URL
- The Ezproxy prefix is https://ezproxy.frederick.edu/login?url=
- You can then take Document URL, for example http://library.cqpress.com/cqresearcher/cqresrre2003071100, and add the proxy prefix in front of it.
- You will also need to add an "s" to the end of the "http" in the Document URL to make it an https:// secure link.
- The final URL will look like this:
Tip! Combine the URLs and add the “s” using Notepad if you have a PC. This will remove any link formatting and make it much easier to make the changes. Then when you copy the new final URL everything will be combined and linked correctly.
