OhioLINK Database Access

Updates to the IP ranges for OhioLINK authentication are affecting OhioLINK web page and OhioLINK database lists; AU users are being asked to "login for access to restricted services" when accessing these resources from on and off-campus locations.

OhioLINK Main Page: Search

OhioLINK: Databases by Title

Individual member library proxy - or library authentication methods - are currently not recognized by the OhioLINK web site. Users will need to authenticate before using any OhioLINK database directly from the OhioLINK web site AND from the AU Library Database by Title Page. A sampling of resources affected by this change include:

When authenticating, you will see the following screens. Be sure to select Ashland University from the Institution drop box and use your seven digit AU id# (without the au- prefix) to finish the process.

Institution Selection (Ashland University)

Authentication Form: Use 7 Digit AU ID#

Problems authenticating? Please feel free to use the library chat service (see the blog sidebar widget) or contact a reference librarian directly @ x5402.
