Good Morning!

The faculty login for student-posted links is the same as always: username (the part of the Brenau email address before the @) and the 6 digit faculty ID. The problem arises when the wrong link is used. The URL at the top of the page will not always link back to the article. The link must have this information embedded in it: ezproxy.brenau.edu to link back to the article.This link will work: http://ezproxy.brenau.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/195131141?accountid=9708. This link will not: http://web.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail?vid=3&hid=126&sid=3936f665-2465-46d1-8e9b-eba62d26089b%40sessionmgr112&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#db=bth&AN=46793989.

Sometimes it is the URL at the top of the browser window, sometimes it is elsewhere on the page and called the "document URL" or the "permalink", among other terms. This functionality is not unique to Brenau, but is characteristic of subscription databases with high quality information.
