OpenAthens for Remote Access: Athenize (formerly "EZProxy") your Links

Athenize Your Links

OpenAthens Logo Use the Athenizer to create links to library content:

Copy and paste a persistent link to an article, ebook, image, or streaming audio/video here to generate a link that will authenticate you when off-campus. Have an old, proxied link? The Athenizer will strip out the proxy string as well as adding OpenAthens information.

Be sure to TEST your links before sharing them.

Ebsco, ProQuest, Gale, and Kanopy URLs do not need to be Athenized. See information below for constructing those links.


The Athenizer Updates your Links

Special Links: EBSCO, ProQuest, Gale and Kanopy

Note that the following providers are not Athenized.

Instead, these providers use a customer id in the links to direct you to our account; just be sure these strings are in your links.
