Links to library resources work differently than links to other kinds of websites because of how our subscriptions work. Publishers want to be certain only authorized users can access their materials, so they check to see if they recognize the visitor as coming from a subscribing computer--and they include extra information in the URLs to allow them to keep track. One of the side-effects of this is that copying and pasting a link from your browser bar sometimes works, but mostly does not. Sometimes it will just not work. Sometimes it will work for students or faculty on-campus, but not off-campus. You can reliably fix these problems by routing the links through the HCCS libraries' proxy server.
