OhioLINK Access Tip

OhioLINK is a wonderful resource for Ohio students, faculty, and researchers.  Thousands of electronic journals, e-books, images, videos, and sounds are available from anywhere at any time.  That’s especially true when you are on campus.  But when you’re off campus, the OhioLINK authentication process may slow down the ease of access.

Access Tip:  bypass the OhioLINK authentication process by logging into the UC proxy server instead, then go to OhioLINK.

Option 1: Bookmark this URL http://proxy.libraries.uc.edu/login?url=http://www.ohiolink.edu

  • When you click on the URL you will be prompted to log into the UC proxy server
  • Log in using your UC central login
  • After logging in, you’ll be at OhioLINK
  • You can tell you’re in the proxy server because you’ll see the word “proxy” in the URL

Option 2: Go to the HSL website and click on OhioLINK from the Quick Links menu on the left

  • Go to the Health Sciences Library website at http://libraries.uc.edu/hsl/
  • When you click on OhioLINK you will be prompted to log into the UC proxy server
  • Log in using your UC central login
  • After logging in, you’ll be at OhioLINK
  • You can tell you’re in the proxy server because you’ll see the word “proxy” in the URL
