 Note: The Find/Replace lines should contain 'http', not 'https'.

In addition, to ensure access to your institution’s subscribed resources, you must construct your Factiva starting point URLs using your institution’s unique ID in the target URL, using the example that follows:

https://global.factiva.com/en/sess/login.asp?XSID={value_from_proquest}

 Note: Factiva site does not access from non-standard HTTP and HTTPS ports when using Proxy by Hostname. Proxy by port is not supported.

A Hosted EZproxy Include File is available for this resource. Hosted EZproxy customers will receive automatic updates with OCLC’s latest version of this stanza. Note: Hosted EZproxy customers in the Americas using self-service may reference the Include File by adding the following line to config.txt:
