Use this link generator to create customized TEL database URLs for your library. These URLs are unique to your library, allow you to collect usage statistics for your institution, and include geolocation authentication so your patrons can access TEL resources without entering a username or password.

For each TEL vendor, enter your library’s account information (e.g., Location ID for Gale; Token for ProQuest) and click Go. Simply copy and paste the URLs when building your library's website.

Alternatively use the TEL Portal URLs access using the portal links will not generate usage statistics for your library.
