Proxy Bookmarklet

This "bookmarklet" helps you get off-campus access to library resources. Click the bookmark to reload the current page through the UPEI Proxy server. If you are off campus, this may give you access to a journal article or book, if we have licensed access.

This bookmarklet is a small bit of javascript that doesn't require you to install anything, just drag a link into your toolbar. There are also browser extensions such as LibX that do similar things and can also search for open-access copies of the same article.

Notes:

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