Learning Commons

Electronic Items

NOTE: Students, faculty, and staff will need to update any bookmarks, saved links, or reading list links they maintain apart from the Learning Commons' web presence. 

All article links need to be "authenticated" for off-campus access.  Many databases will provide a proxied link for you (aka permalink), sometimes located in Share icon  DOI links will also need to be proxied for access to subscription resources.


Starting Fresh (Removing EZProxy References)

Any links including reference to our old authentication system, EZProxy, will need to be reformatted.

URLs containing reference to ezproxy.agpc will no longer be usable. Start with a fresh URL from a resource and use the Open Athens Link Generator (info below) to create new links. 


Creating OpenAthens Links (Athenized Links)

Use the NWP OpenAthens link generator to create links to specific Learning Commons resources. 

  1. Paste a permalink or stable URL for the resource you would like to link to in the box and press enter.
  2. Copy the generated URL.
  3. TEST the link to ensure it works 
  4. Use the copied URL to link to the source.

IMPORTANT The OpenAthens link generator should not be used for resources found in Ebsco, ProQuest, Gale, and Kanopy databases.
