How can I set up a direct URL to AutoMate?

If your institution subscribes to AutoMate through EBSCO, you can set up a direct URL that goes through the Select Service screen to bring your users to the database. We recommend you do not attempt to bypass the Select Service screen as this can cause authentication issues.

The following URL will direct your users into AutoMate, using IP authentication or will prompt users for their ID and password credentials:,uid&custid={xxxxxxx}&site=automate&groupid=main

Note: Replace {xxxxxxx} with your institution's customer ID.
