Q. How to add the bookmark to browser to refresh literature page offcampus

Hi, I remember there is a way to add a book mark the browser to reload a literature page, to check if we have subscription to read the full article, but I couldn't find it, could you please help me wit hthis?


The HS/HSL Proxy Button is what you need to add to your browser to do that. Instructions for adding the proxy button are available on this page of the library's website: http://www.hshsl.umaryland.edu/resources/offcampus.cfm

Try the HS/HSL Proxy Button

Add the button to your browser's bookmark toolbar (see instructions below), and whenever you come across a journal you think you should be able to access, click the button to reload the page through the HS/HSL proxy. You will then be prompted for your UMID and password.


Drag the button to the bookmarks toolbar or right click and select the "Bookmark This Link" option.

Chrome or Safari:
Drag the button to the bookmarks toolbar. If the bookmarks toolbar isn't visible, press Ctrl + Shift + B (in Chrome).

Internet Explorer:
Right click the button and choose the "Add to favorites..." option. You may get a warning about adding unsafe links. While it's good practice to be wary, we believe this link is safe.

Note:  Reloading a page through the proxy won't give you access if it's a resource we don't subscribe to. Go to the Library's website for a complete list of journals, databases and books.
