Have you updated your links?

ACU now uses OpenAthens for remote authentication to articles, ebooks and other readings from library online databases and collections. OpenAthens allows our students to access readings from these subscription resources when off campus. It is a critical aspect of accessing library resources at ACU.

Since July, our old provider (EZproxy) and OpenAthens have been working in parallel. We will decommission EZproxy at the end of December 2022. After this time, all links using EZproxy will no longer work.

It is critical that you update links in your online units to use OpenAthens before Semester 1, 2023.

What you need to know
  • If you are using Leganto readings lists, you do not need to do anything. The library is updating links in Leganto reading lists.
  • Links using EZproxy will not work in 2023.
  • When developing new online units for LEO/Canvas you must use the OpenAthens link generator to create links to readings from library databases and collections.
  • When rolling over existing units in LEO/Canvas you must use the OpenAthens link generator to update links to readings from library databases and collections.

Help is available. Contact LibraryHelp@acu.edu.au for information or advice.
