Off-campus access to electronic resources: Firefox bookmarklet
by Jim Hobbs

You can change the name or other properties of the bookmarklet by right clicking and dragging down to Properties or control + click on a Mac.
When you're on a page that you got to other than through the library's list of online information services or e-journals, you can click the bookmarklet to reload the page with our proxy server information. That way you can quickly and easily go to the resource, but only if it's one to which we subscribe.
