Library Database Re-linking In Bridges Announcement -

 

Dear Faculty,

If you created a link to a library database, article, or video in Bridges prior to this Fall semester, that link needs to be changed because the library has a new proxy server for allowing off-campus access to library resources. 

This new proxy allows RWU faculty and students to login in with their default single sign-in.

If your link looks like this:

http://0-search.ebscohost.com.helin.uri.edu/login.asp?profile=web&defaultdb=a9h

It needs to be changed to this:

https://rwulib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.asp?profile=web&defaultdb=a9h

The bolded portions of the url are the parts that need updating.   Remove the 0- and .helin.uri.edu and add https://rwulib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=

Please contact Sue McMullen (smcmullen@rwu.edu or x3086) if you would like assistance in doing this.
