To allow off-campus access to Library-licensed resources, users must access it via a special (proxied) link that tells the web browser to use the Library Proxy Server. But sometimes if users bookmark the page when they're on campus or didn't start their research from the Library website, they might end up with a normal (non-proxied) link that doesn't work off-campus.
How to tell?
|Proxied Link ✔ (a link like this should work off-campus)||Normal Link × (a link like this won't work off-campus)|
If you have a normal link, use this 2 tools below to turn it into a proxied link that will work off-campus
1. Proxy Link Generator: use this for an ad-hoc link creation e.g. when you need to send a link to yourself or a friend.
2. Proxy Bookmarklet: use this if you frequently run into an issue. You only need to add the bookmarklet to your browser once.
Use this Link Generator to create 'proxied' links.
Drag this red bookmarklet to your browser Bookmark Bar ↑
Once you have the bookmarklet installed, you can click it to reload current page / tab with Library Proxy Server
