School & Library Staff: Update BadgerLink URLs by March 2020

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Do you link to Explora for Middle & High Schools, MasterFILE Complete, or any other BadgerLink resource on your website or in another application? As of September 30th all BadgerLink authenticated URLs changed. Our vendor is providing a redirect for up to 6 months.

Any library or school that places these authenticated URLs on a website, within a proxy, or in another SSO application such as OpenAthens, will need to edit the URLs no later than early March 2020 in order to continue providing users access outside of the BadgerLink website. Find current URLs on the BadgerLink Resource URLs Google sheet.

For reference, the outdated authenticated URL structure for Academic Search Premier was: https://www.wiscat.net/homepages/CustomerWide/ValidateGlobalIP.asp?cuid=stwi&lid=stwi&dataid=71&term= 

The updated URL structure is formatted as: https://www.wiscat.net/ext/validateglobal.php?cid=stwi&lid=stwi&dataid=71

Take a look at your BadgerLink URLs and contact us with any questions!
