How Do I?

How can I link to NEOMED Library resources from Canvas?

Links to many resources are posted in Canvas. These links will require you to authenticate as a NEOMED library affiliate to access.

To authenticate, you will need your student ID number (i.e. 00123456, for library purposes do not include the @). You should have received this from enrollment services.

There are two different types of URL’s that will require authentication.

Option One: NEOMED licensed resources – you will see the EZproxy prefix ( at the beginning of the URL, or you will see a link to our Discovery layer.

In both cases, when you are off-campus, when you click the URL or on the full text within the Discovery Layer, you’ll get a page asking for this information:

Your name will be your given name: Last, First.

Your library ID number is your student ID number. You’ll need to enter the zeroes; the system wants an 8-digit number not including the @. 

Option two: OhioLINK licensed resources – will be in the URL.

When you click the URL, you’ll first be asked to identify your institution.

You will then be prompted to enter your login credentials as  noted above.

Note – your student ID number provides off-campus access, lets you request books, and allows you access to printing using the campus printers.

If you ever forget your ID number, stop by the library or call the Information Desk at 330-325-6600.
