Athenize your links

If you have a required readings for your students, the easiest way to make sure they find the right material is by giving them the link to the document. OpenAthens has an easy system to create links that are permanent.

Step 1: Deproxify your permalinks.

If you have or embedded in your links you need to get rid of it. (No proxy in your link? Skip to step 2.)

For example:

Link with Proxy:
Link with Proxy removed:

PLEASE NOTE: EBSCO, Proquest, Gale and Kanopy links cannot be altered easily. If you use them, we recommend you contact the library for further assistance. See Course Readings link below.

Step 2: Paste your URL in the box below.



Your results should look something like this:

Athenized (Step 2):


If you don't have time to create permalinks for your reading list, UFV library will do it for you. Contact us for more details:
