Library "easy" button for access off campus

| No Comments

There is now a "easy" button that makes the article or paid resource you want to read on the web...act as if you went through the library web site. (if we purchased it). This will work the same as if you went though the library web site to access it.

Just drag the bookmarklet below to your browser toolbar. When you're on a publisher's webpage, click the UMN Access button. The code will update links on the page to use the University Libraries's proxy and you'll be able to download full text just as if you were on campus, 

UMN Access

The idea and code for this bookmarklet came from Daniel Feldman, a graduate student in Software Engineering. Thanks, Daniel! And Thanks Jan, our Engineering Librarian for discovering!
