How do I authenticate to EBSCO collections within the library network?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
  • Access to EBSCO URLs
Answer

Most institutions have two types of authentication at EBSCO within their library network:

  1. User ID login (authtype=uid).
  2. IP Authentication (authtype=ip).

If you have the option activated at EBSCO, to be authtype=ip,uid that would grant the user access when they are on campus. This setting will make sure that the authentication first looks at the IP address. And when the IP address is not correct, it will then opt for the user id login.
