Library Remote Authentication: Home

When you are connecting to a resource that the AU Libraries have purchased, you may be presented with a login page; here's what to do!

The Basics

Access to AU Library resources is for all active students, faculty, and staff.

  • We define an "active" student as someone who is enrolled in one or more courses for the current semester.
  • We define an "active" faculty or staff member as someone who is currently employed and being paid by Antioch University.

Use your AUeID for access. Manage your AUeID password at the website.

Username or Password Incorrect

If you receive the "incorrect username or password" error...

  • Try entering both your AUeID and Password again.
  • If you have forgotten your AUeID password, you can reset it at

What about OhioLINK?

OhioLINK isn't really a "destination" like it once was. Although there are some ebooks and ejournals still provided by this vendor on their platform, most content is housed on publishers' websites. There are no databases "at OhioLINK".

You are able to search across all library resources using WorldCat Local.

If you feel you must connect to OhioLINK, you can use the AU Library Remote Authentication to connect to OhioLINK just as you would any other database.

Connect to OhioLINK

...and you will be able to use your AUeID credentials.


If you live in Ohio and are requesting books through the OhioLINK or OPAL library systems, you will need to still use authentication on those systems.
