Using Bookmarklets for Off-Campus Access

A guide to using bookmarklets to more seamlessly access library resources off-campus

Using the Bookmarklet

To use the bookmarklet in either browser:

  1. Click on the link you would like to proxy
  2. Click on the bookmarklet in your extensions list or on your browser bar
  3. The page will reload with the proxy embedded. If you have not logged in, you may be prompted to login. You should not have to login each time you use the bookmarklet. 

Note: If the library does not subscribe to a particular resource, you may end up with an error page. In this case, you may wish to search Omni or another database directly for the resource.
