Books and Book Chapters:

Pratt Library Ebook List

If the ebook you wish to link to is in the list on the Pratt Library page you can link directly to that page:  You can also check the Core Child Health book list on our website.

UCLID for ebooks

The UCLID library catalog from UC provides one way to link to ebooks.  Search for the book you want to share, and at the bottom of the record page there is a "permanent link to this record" available to copy and share.




OVID books

Currently the only successful way  to access books in the UC OVID package is to go to their website and log in for off campus access through the proxy ( - log in as an affiliate) then to do a search in the Books+ UCLID tab on the homepage for the title of the book.  

  1. Visit UC.
  1. Click on big red button that says “Off Campus Access-Login”
  1. Select “Library Off Campus Access (Proxy)” button
  1. Sign in under Affiliates Login.
  1. On main library page, under books tab, search for “5 Minute Obstetrics and gynecology consult” or whatever the title of your book from the OVID package is.
  2. On results page that follows, click on electronic link…which takes me to the full book instead of the error message received through other access pathways.


Test Your Permalink

Test to ensure your link is actually a permalink

The best way to ensure that your links are actually permalinks is to check them on a different computer than the one you created them on.  You can also try testing them again on the same computer at least a day or two later, but a different computer is the best test.
