What's the best way to share a link to a digital book?

The Los Rios Libraries offer digital copies of certain textbooks and other library materials. If you need to save or share the link to a digital book there are two ways to do so. The OneSearch Record link is recommended for sharing. 

OneSearch Record Link

When you find a title in OneSearch use the tools to keep yourself organized. The "Show Permalink" tool allows you to copy and paste a persistent link or permalink back to the source so you don’t have to go hunting for it again.

The share link will allow you to copy a URL that leads directly to the digital book.  Keep in mind that anyone you share with will need to log in to access an available copy. (Note: It is NOT recommended to use this share link for viewing on mobile devices.)
