Q. I'm an FSCJ faculty member, and my course permalinks to library content no longer work due to the catalog conversion to OpenAthens. What do I do?


In the summer of 2020, the FSCJ LLC switched from an EZProxy server to OpenAthens in order to provide more seamless access to online catalog and database content.  Unfortunately, permalinks created within EZProxy will no longer work.  Follow these steps to re-create permalinks via OpenAthens:

  1. Go to myFSCJ to log in, then choose Library and Learning Commons under Useful Links.
  2. Perform a search for your article,book, etc.
  3. Click into the record content. For digital content (eBooks, eJournal articles, etc.), make sure you click on the full-text link, so you go to the vendor record. 
  4. Look for the permalink button (location varies depending on type of item and vendor). Copy and paste it into your course content.


If you have any questions regarding this process, please don't hesitate to ask a librarian for assistance via LibChat.
