How can I set up a direct link to History Reference Center?

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

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?site=hrc

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

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

If you would like your users to bypass the Select Service Screen and go directly to History Reference Center, you should pass the profile parameter onto your URL. For example, to reach the History Reference Center Home Page, use this URL:

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,uid&profile=hrc
