What is the direct URL syntax to link to an ebook or audiobook?

To link directly to an eBook or Audiobook, use the following URL syntax:

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=XXXXX

Note: This URL includes both the eBook and Audiobook collection database product codes. You can specify only the eBooks or Audiobooks database by removing the other product code from the URL string.

  • Remove &db=nlebk from the string to limit the URL to the Audiobooks database.

  • Remove &db=nlabk from the string to limit the URL to the eBooks database.

For the AN part of the URL, replace XXXXX with the Accession Number found in the Detailed Record for the eBook or Audiobook.
