Open Athens Link Generator

Another way to create a persistent link that is compatible with the library's authentication system is by using the OpenAthens Link Generator tool. This tool will not work for ProQuest Databases, EBSCO Databases, Gale Databases, or Kanopy. 

To use the Open Athens link generator: 

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

Multiple URLs can be created at one time.

Be sure to test your new links before saving and sharing!
