OpenAthens Redirector Tool

Please find the OpenAthens Generator Tool here:

The target url is the direct url  or the source url of the video or ebook that you need to use. Please note that some video or ebook platforms do not need further "Athenizing". This note is VERY IMPORTANT!

As always, if you need assistance, please reach out to the library for help.

NOTE: Some databases need OpenAthens redirects and some don't. See details below.
