    Reload your webpage with a proxied link using a bookmarklet

    If the site you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, and you're presently off-campus and denied access, you can reload the page with the necessary proxy by using a bookmarklet.

    Drag this link to your browser's toolbar: Reload and UWin

    (Confused? This video shows how to install and use this tool)

    For those links that don't work, you can check to see if the Leddy Library has a subscription to what you would like either by checking our list of journals or by checking the Leddy Library holdings through Google Scholar.
