How do I set up a direct link to Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center?

URL parameters can be used to enable direct links from an external web page to the Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center™ (HCRC) Home Page. A sample URL is:

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

  • login.aspx?site=hcrc&authtype=uid
  • login.aspx?site=hcrc&authtype=url,uid

If you would like your users to bypass the Select Service Screen and go directly to a specific EBSCO interface, you should pass the profile parameter on your URL. For example, to reach the Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center Home Page, use this URL:,uid&profile=hcrc
