Trouble with OpenAthens?

Try using a WAYFLess URL!

You can link directly to our sites without having to use the 'Where Are You From' (WAYF) page. The WAYFless URL will provide you with a direct link for Shibboleth authentication to the corresponding sites.

You will need your OpenAthens entity ID to create a WAYFless URL. If you're an institutional admin, find your entity ID on Sitemanager. If you're another user, you can ask your librarian or do a search on Google.

To create a WAYFless URL, please follow the instructions below:

Medical Access sites:

(Where it says https://accessmedicine.mhmedical.com, type the medical access site that you would like to access. Where it says ENTITYID, enter your OpenAthens entity ID.)

Example: https://mhmedical.com/SignInShibboleth.aspx?view=handler&redirecturl=https://accessmedicine.mhmedical.com&entityID=ENTITYID

You can also direct users to specific content on the Access site by replacing the red URL above with the URL of a particular book on the site.
