Public and academic libraries should use their customized auth token URL, generated by LearningExpress, to link to LearningExpress Library. The links are specific to each institution and include authentication within the URL. Use of the customized link also attributes usage to the institution appropriately. Institutions that use proxy servers, however, do not use a customized auth token URL. Proxy servers are addressed below.
