    To set up the OpenAthens Redirector service:

    2. Log in to the Client Center, click on Library Settings, then select Library URLs from the menu on the left side.

    3. Click Edit in the upper-right corner.

    4. Choose Authentication Type: Redirector, and enter the Redirector prefix

    5. Configure special article linking parameters for EBSCOhost databases (Authentication Type and Customer ID) and ProQuest databases (Account ID) on their respective Database Details pages.

    6. Select the Omit Proxy check box for subscribed databases from the providers EBSCOhost, Gale, and ProQuest, and then contact the Support Team to request configuration of the title-level URLs for the databases from these providers.

    7. The proxy will be applied the next day. To make sure it works without waiting a day, you can test the proxied journal-level links through the URL Preview link in the Data Management section of the Client Center:
