OpenAthens and Connecting to Libraries Electronic Resources

Creating Custom OpenAthens Links for Exception Resources

It is recommended to use the built in permanent link generator for the following Database/Vendor platforms:

  • Gale
  • Kanopy
  • O'Reilly Safari
  • ProQuest and ProQuest Ebook Central

Please see examples below from some of these databases. Each database is set up a bit differently, so look for an internal option to link or share. These functions will generate a link that you can use. The screenshots below are offered as a sample. Note: You cannot copy and paste the URL at the top of your browser from any of these resources, as it is not persistent and will not initiate the Purdue Login.
