Using Bookmarklets for Off-Campus Access

What is a bookmarklet for Off-Campus Access? 

A bookmarklet, or browser extension for off-campus access is a tool that prepends the proxy prefix onto an existing URL. If the library subscribes to the resource, you will be able to access it without having to redo a search in Omni or the library database. 

This guide gives instructions for installing the the EZproxy Redirect bookmarklet available in the Google Chrome or Firefox browsers. It also reviews how to use the bookmarklet after installation.
