Proxy Bookmarklet

If you do your research from off-campus, and don't want the full feature set of LibX, we recommend you install the proxy bookmarklet on your browser's bookmarks toolbar. The bookmarklet lets you log into the proxy without having to browse from the Library website.

Installation Instructions

Safari or Google Chrome:

Click and drag this "via Proxy" link to your "Bookmarks" bar


  • Right click on this link: "via Proxy"
  • select "Bookmark This Link"
  • click and drag that link to your "Bookmarks" toolbar

Internet Explorer:

  • Right click on this link: "via Proxy"
  • select "Add to Favorites"
  • click and drag the link to your "Links" toolbar.

You might see a security alert that the "favorite may not be safe", although it is. Click "yes" to continue.


  • The bookmarklet is compatible with most web browsers and platforms as long as your bookmarks or favorites allow javascript.
  • If the links toolbar is not visible in your browser, you can try to enable it under the View > Toolbars menu.
  • You can also save the bookmarklet in your bookmarks folder instead of the toolbar.
