Can I share links to resources from the Learning Commons with my students/classmates?


Yes! Students, staff, and faculty can share articles, eBooks, and online videos from open access and licensed resources. 

Use the NWP OpenAthens link generator to create links to specific Learning Commons resources. 

  1. Paste a permalink or stable URL for the resource you would like to link to in the box and press enter.
  2. Copy the generated URL.
  3. TEST the link to ensure it works 
  4. Use the copied URL to link to the source.

IMPORTANT The OpenAthens link generator should not be used for resources found in Ebsco, ProQuest, Gale, and Kanopy databases. 


As of May 2023, any links, bookmarks, or reading lists including reference to our old authentication system, EZProxy, will need to be reformatted. URLs containing reference to ezproxy.agpc will no longer be usable. Start with a fresh URL from a resource and use the Open Athens Link Generator to create new links.


If you need assistance sharing a link from a specific database, please contact Learning Commons staff via chat or e-mail at or
