EBSCOadmin Authentication

Welcome to the EBSCOadmin Authentication

EBSCOhost subscription databases, from your
institution or remote locations. To customize
your Authentication options, click the

link. Select the Group ID from the drop-down
menu, add your ID and password, and click Submit.
Each authentication type has a unique URL
displayed, which you may provide to your users.
IP Address Authentication Entering station IP
addresses can eliminate the need for user IDs and
passwords. To enable this method, click Add IP

the fields and click Submit.

institution accesses EBSCOhost) provides seamless
access to EBSCOhost from another secure web page.
Click on the Add Referring URL link. In the
Referring URL field, enter the URL for the page
from which users will originate. Click Submit.
Cookie Authentication Once you have enabled the
Use Cookies option and the end user has entered
EBSCOhost by any authentication method, a cookie
is placed on their computer, which will last for
30 days, eliminating the need to re-enter their
ID and password. Under the Cookies tab, set Use
Cookies to Yes. Click Submit.

belongs to a federation, you may be able to use
Shibboleth authentication. Click the Add
