Library Bookmarklet

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 password.

Once you've added this bookmark to your web browser, clicking it will reload the page you're on through the Thompson Library's EZProxy. If it's a resource that we have access to, you'll pass through a login screen and be granted access to it. If it's not one of our resources, or if EZproxy is not up to date, you'll get an error screen with further instructions.
