-Off-Campus Access & OpenAthens-
The easiest way to access and share electronic library resources from off-campus is to use the library website (see the sections below for how best to do this). You will be prompted to sign in using your ARTIC login when you connect to a database, ejournal, article, ebook, streaming video, etc. through this method. We use a product called OpenAthens (which replaced EZProxy in June 2021) to create these connections. If you have an existing link that contains ‘proxy.artic.edu’ you will need to change it to an OpenAthens link. See instructions for "Linking to ebooks, ejournals, articles" below.
Permalinks are the easiest way to link to library resources in Canvas, reading lists, websites, and email. A permalink is a URL or web address that will consistently point to a specific library resource such as an article, ebook, ejournal, streaming video, database, or record in a database.
Why use permalinks:
-Linking to Ebooks, Ejournals, Articles-
Start from the Library homepage and use the Library Search box to search for the resource. (See our How to Find Resources guide for instructions on using library resources by type.) After you find the resource you need, click on the name to see the description. Look for the Permalink button under the resource's information, click and copy.
If you are searching within a library database and want to link to a database record for an article or book, look for a permalink, stable URL, or a share link. Most databases provide a link that will bring you back to the record in the database.
-Linking to Streaming Video-
Below are details for linking to specific streaming video services and databases.
