Library Bookmarklet


The EZProxy bookmarklet is a convenient library access tool for your home computer or laptop. When you're off campus, the bookmarklet makes it easy to reload pages through the Thompson Library’s EZProxy server. If it's an online resource the Thompson Library subscribes to, you can then log 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.
