Tip: Linking to the Online Catalog

Have you ever tried to e-mail or post a link to a particular item in our online catalog, but your e-mail or Web publishing program balked at the cumbersome URL (example - http://innopac.fauquiercounty.gov/search/++ftlist/++ftlist/1%2C1%2C1%2CB/frameset~1169825%5Ebib63%2C1%2C3%2C114/mode=2)? Now you can get a nice, short URL by clicking on or right-clicking on the "Click here for a permanent URL for this record" link. When you do that, you'll notice that the URL in the address bar will be something like, http://innopac.fauquiercounty.gov/record=b1169825. Much easier to send to a friend or post in your blog or personal Web page.
