Take almost any* library database link

(*for exceptions to these rules, see the Exceptions section at the end of this document)

and add the following prefix 

https://widgets.ebscohost.com/prod/customlink/proxify/proxify.php?count=1&encode=0&proxy=https%3A%2F%2Fgo.openathens.net%2Fredirector%2Fshu.edu%3Furl%3D&find_1=&replace_1=&target=

Examples (Highlighted portion is library resource URL):

https://widgets.ebscohost.com/prod/customlink/proxify/proxify.php?count=1&encode=0&proxy=https%3A%2F%2Fgo.openathens.net%2Fredirector%2Fshu.edu%3Furl%3D&find_1=&replace_1=&target=http://www.oxfordislamicstudies.com/Public/focus.html  

Exceptions to above Linking Schema

The following vendors do not need any OpenAthens prefix:

  1. Kanopy
  2. Proquest
  3. EBSCO
  4. Gale
  5. PolicyMap

These vendors just need the direct URL which must include the SHU Identifier:

Kanopy example:

https://shu.kanopy.com/video/kedi

Proquest

https://search.proquest.com/docview/1975078581?accountid=13793 

EBSCO

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&AuthType=ip,sso&db=psyh&AN=2019-04272-006&site=eds-live&authtype=sso&custid=s8475574

Gale:
