Proxy string

If you are denied access to an online resource provided by the Thompson Library, it might be because there is no proxy string in the URL. You can attach the following (including the equals sign) to the front of the URL and try again:

http://libproxy.umflint.edu/login?url=

Example:

http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.2307/3162256   (not accessible off campus)

http://libproxy.umflint.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.2307/3162256   (accessible off campus)

If you still cannot gain access, please contact a librarian. It's helpful if you have the the error or denial-of-access page in front of you when you contact us.

DOI: If you have a DOI (digital object identifier) for an article, but not a complete URL, add this to the beginning of the DOI:

http://libproxy.umflint.edu/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/

Example:

10.2307/3162256 (DOI without a URL)

http://libproxy.umflint.edu/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.2307/3162256 (working URL)

You can also visit the DOI link resolver at http://dx.doi.org/ and enter the DOI to get a working URL. You will still need to add the proxy string if you're off campus.

EZProxy Bookmarklet

The EZProxy bookmarklet lets you reload a web page through the Thompson Library’s EZProxy server. If the page you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, and you're presently off-campus, then you should get you immediate access to the resource once you've logged in with your uniqname and LAN password.

How Do You Add It?

There's a different method for different browsers:

Firefox: Right-click on the following link, then select the "Bookmark This Link" option:
Reload with Thompson Library EZProxy
Internet Explorer: Right-click on this link
Reload with Thompson Library EZProxy
Select the "Add to Favorites..." option. You may be warned that you are adding a link which may be unsafe. While some links like this may be unsafe, we believe this one is safe. You can click whichever option is required to continue.
Safari and Google Chrome: Drag this link to your bookmarks toolbar:
Reload with Thompson Library EZProxy

Once you've added this bookmark to your web browser, selecting it will attempt to reload your current page through the Thompson Library's EZProxy. If it's a resource that your UM-Flint affiliation gets you access, you'll pass through a login screen and be granted access to it. Otherwise, you'll get the same page you started with.

Please let us know how well the EZProxy bookmarklet works.
