How can I set up a URL to link directly to Points of View Reference Center?

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

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

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

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

If you would like your users to bypass the Select Service Screen and go directly to Points of View Reference Center, you should pass the profile parameter on your URL.

For example, to direct users to the Points of View Reference Center home page, use this URL:

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

For Canadian Points of View Reference Centre, use this URL:

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