How do I set up a direct URL to Biography Reference Center?

URL parameters can be used to enable direct links from an external web page to the Biography Reference Center home page. A sample URL is:

The URL can be modified for other login pages, for example:

  • login.aspx?site=brc&authtype=custuid&custid={CustomerID}
  • login.aspx?site=brc&authtype=uid
  • login.aspx?site=brc&authtype=cpid&custid={CustomerID}
  • login.aspx?site=brc&authtype=url,uid
