Simple question, the answer to which eludes me.
All the URLs seem to be specific to a session and will not work subsequently.
Surely the NAA has a permalink or equivalent for each item?
You are correct - the URLs in RecordSearch are session-specific. It is possible to create a permalink to items using the following URL template:
http://www.naa.gov.au/go.aspx?i=[ItemBarcodeNumber] where [ItemBarcodeNumber] is the item's barcode number.
You can also link to a specific page in a digitised item using:
http://www.naa.gov.au/go.aspx?i=[ItemBarcode]&f=[FolioNumber] where [ItemBarcode] is the item barcode number and [FolioNumber] is the folio number.
Hope this helps,
Thank you so much for that, your suggestions work a treat.
I was concerned at first that your links were http:// rather than the https:// of Record Search, but I see that the link which opens is https://
However, I have several hundred inline citations to do for my Wikibook.
Can I proceed to create all these citations with confidence that this style of link will work for decades to come?
