Referer or URI Authentication

It is possible to control your access to 123Library by Referer or URI. Users who come immediately from a specified link will be automatically logged in to your 123Library account.

In this case we would want to set up your Referer as “

Any user clicking a link to 123Library from a page that begins “” would then be automatically logged in to your account and identified as coming from your institution.
