Streaming Music: Permalinks

URL: https://libguides.cmich.edu/streamingaudio

What is a Permalink?

Normally, collecting and posting links to websites involves copying and pasting from the address bar of your web browser. However, linking to specific tracks and playlists in CMU Library databases requires that the URL be both

1) a permanant link (aka "permalink") and

2) routed through the proxy server for off-campus access.

Permalinks are URLs provided by a site that will link directly to that page's information, regardless of the path or search you used to get there. Check out the instructions for each database provided in this guide for collecting permalinks to use in your course website.

Naxos

Permalinks in Naxos are available for individual tracks and faculty created playlists (not Student/Member created playlists). These permalinks can be bookmarked for use later, or they can be copied and pasted into course websites or other documents.

  • Naxos permalinks collected from off-campus will work for all users in all locations. They are already configured for CMU Library's proxy server and contain "http://cmich.idm.oclc.org/login?url="  within the URL.

Permalink to a faculty or public playlist:

1) In playlist window, click the checkbox next to "Display Static URL to Playlist"

2) Static URL appears below each playlist.  Copy URL and paste into desired document (website, PDF, etc.)

3) Adjust URL (if necessary) to go through proxy server by adding the CMU Library proxy prefix.


Permalink to work or track:

1. In album window, click "Show Static URL" in the left-hand column

2) Static URL appears below each work and each track. Copy URL and paste into desired document.

3) Adjust URL (if necessary) to go through proxy server by adding the CMU Library proxy prefix.

DRAM

Permalinks in DRAM are available only at the album level. These permalinks can be bookmarked for use later, or they can be copied and pasted into course websites or other documents.

  • DRAM permalinks will always need to be adjusted before posting the URL on course websites. Add the prefix "http://cmich.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://proxy.dramonline.org/" to the permalink to ensure off-campus access.

Permalink to album:

1) In album window, RIGHT CLICK the permalink icon

2) Choose "copy link," "copy link location," or "copy shortcut" from the right-click menu (varies depending upon web browser)

3) Paste URL into desired document (webpage, PDF, etc.)

4) Adjust URL to go through proxy server by adding the CMU Library proxy prefix.

Permalinks are available at the album level only.
