Important changes required for linking to library resources 

ITS and the Library have implemented changes to the authentication for electronic resources. Currently EZproxy and OpenAthens authentication are working in parallel but from the 30th November 2022 EZproxy authentication will cease linking to online resources. Any links containing EZproxy in the url (via Moodle, EndNote, bookmarks etc.) will require updating. Any links that contain OpenAthens authentication will not require any changes. 

How do I update EZproxy links? 

To update EZproxy you will need to generate new links which will utilise OpenAthens authentication. For further information click here

If you are experiencing any issues generating new links, please contact us for help.
