How and when would I use the OpenAthens Link Generator?

Faculty may wish to use the OpenAthens Link Generator to create links to content in databases to use in Canvas for student access.

All of the FAU Libraries’ proprietary e-resources URLs will need to have the OpenAthens prefix "" added to the URL as these e-resources will automatically redirect to OpenAthens on the vendor’s side. Also, just like with EZproxy, open access e-resources do not require authentication and open access URLs with OpenAthens added to the beginning of the URL will not work.

For detailed information and examples, visit the OpenAthens Link Generator web page.
