About Persistent Links

These links can be inserted into a library's Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC). This allows users of the OPAC to link directly into a publication's page within IEEE Xplore.

How to use OPAC Linking?

To create links from an OPAC record to the publication's title or issue level in IEEE Xplore, insert the appropriate link into your system. Links may be created at the title level (for journals/magazines, conference proceedings and standards) or at an issue's table of contents level (for journals/magazines only.)

IEEE Xplore Title Lists

The links included within these title lists are persistent and will remain intact into the future. For journal and magazine titles, links can also be created to the issue's table of contents.
