Update your library links

Federation Library has made changes to authentication for electronic resources from EZproxy to OpenAthens.

From Thursday December 1 2022, the Library will no longer support EZproxy links to Library resources. You can update your EZproxy links to OpenAthens links using the link generator tool.

You will need to check and update your links in Moodle, in reference software such as EndNote and any bookmarked URLs that contain EZproxy in the link.

How do I know if a link needs updating?

Links that need updating will contain ‘ezproxy.federation.edu.au’ in the URL.

Below are some examples:

  • https://ezproxy.federation.edu.au/login?url=https://doi.org/10.1080/09500693.2017.1388940
  • https://doi-org.ezproxy.federation.edu.au/10.1111/j.1523-1739.2007.00676.x

How do I update my EZproxy links?

To update EZproxy links you will need to generate new links which use OpenAthens authentication.

You can update your links using the link generator tool.

For more information see our OpenAthens authentication guide.
