When researching in the library databases, it's a good habit to use the tools within the database to save search results and articles. These tools can include making an account in the database to save sources, using the email tool, or copying the permalink or stable url rather than what's on top of your browser.

 

Gale

Look for the "Get Link" button towards the upper-right. This button will give you a page link for any page you're on, whether it's search results or an individual article.
