The following options are available for lecturers to create and share links to library resources (such as licensed ebooks, journal articles, and multimedia resources) with students in LEO. Instructions for locating permalinks in select databases are also available below.
Ezproxy authenticates ACU users, allowing access to Library’s subscribed resources off-campus.
To create an ezproxy link, paste a DOI or a stable (persistent) link to library journal articles, ebooks etc. into the form below to create a link with the ezproxy prefix
Most library databases have options available to create a stable URL to their online content.
Look for linking icons or for terms such as ‘DOI’, ‘Permanent URL’, 'Permalink', 'Bookmark URL', ‘Embed/Link', 'Document URL', ‘Share’, 'Deep Link' or 'Stable URL'. Copy and paste the hyperlink into the form below and select 'Build link'.

Persistent link example: If you paste the stable URL https://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;res=IELHEA;dn=308977634220059 into the above generator the link becomes https://ezproxy.acu.edu.au/login?url=https://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;dn=474816764608173;res=IELHEA
DOI link examples: If you paste either 10.1007/s11422-017-9809-1 (the DOI), OR https://doi.org/10.1007/s11422-017-9809-1 (the DOI web address) into the above generator the link becomes https://ezproxy.acu.edu.au/login?url=https://doi.org/10.1007/s11422-017-9809-1
Permanent links and/or DOIs are easy to find in most library databases. Look for linking icons or for terms such as DOI, Permanent URL, Permalink, Bookmark URL, Embed/Link, Deep Link, Document URL, Share or Stable URL.
Instructions are provided below for the databases below where locating a permalink can be a bit harder.
