The UMS Libraries Proxy Bookmarklet allows you to quickly and easily access restricted journal articles and ebooks discovered on a publisher’s website while conducting research on the open internet.
When you are prompted for a login, or hit a paywall, the proxy bookmarklet will reload the page through the University’s proxy server and return you back to your journal site as an authenticated user assuming our library has access to that particular resource. (If you still don't have access, send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to see if we can get it for you).
To install the proxy bookmarklet on your desktop or laptop computer and to learn how to use it (with examples to try), see instructions below.
Click on the appropriate browser link below to follow the directions for installing.
Two examples to try:
On-Campus or Off-Campus: https://www.chronicle.com/interactives/Trend19-OpenAccess-Main
(In general, the bookmarklet is for off-campus, but sometimes you may need it on-campus. Most resources are available on campus without the need of the bookmarklet.)
