Unfortunately, when you copy and paste a "link" from the browser address bar in a database that is generally not a stable link (or permanent URL or PURL).  You must capture the stable link from inside the database.  What these links are called and how to get to them vary from database vendor to database vendor.

However, we have two useful guides that can help with this:
