Linking to Library Resources

Linking into library subscription databases requires a URL that will take users through our proxy server first to verify that they are authenticated users. This is because we pay for the databases based on current enrollment numbers, thus we can only allow currently enrolled students and current faculty/staff remote access to the databases. Most of our databases provide proxy URLs to link to specific articles or sections (EBSCO, ProQuest, etc) but for those that do not, you can build your own link. The steps are:


  • Find the permanent URL you would like to use for the article, ebook, etc.
    Note: please make sure you are copying a permanent URL, not a session-specific URL.

  • Add the proxy server URL prefix to the front of the permanent URL.
    The proxy prefix is: http://swansong.asumh.edu:2048/login?url=

  • Copy and paste the final link into your address bar to test it.


EXAMPLE:


Below is the non-proxied link to the Grammar and Writing Skills of the College Section of the LearningExpress Library's website. This link would work fine from any system connected to the campus network (wired or wireless).


http://www.learningexpresshub.com/productengine/LELIndex.html#/college-center/resources/grammar-and-writing-skills-review/grammar/grammar-practice-sets


Off campus access, however, involves the library's EZ Proxy server, which we use for authentication. Directly accessing the Grammar and Writing Skills section would not work and instead the user would be redirected to the EZ Proxy login page.


Linking directly to library database resources off campus is certainly possible and relatively easy, requiring only the addition of a small prefix to the beginning of the link.


Here is the URL code that should be added to the front of any link to direct the students through our proxy server:


http://swansong.asumh.edu:2048/login?url=


With the prefix in place, the final link for directly accessing the Grammar and Writing Skills section would be:


http://swansong.asumh.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.learningexpresshub.com/productengine/LELIndex.html#/college-center/resources/grammar-and-writing-skills-review/grammar/grammar-practice-sets


To make things a bit easier, we have provided an automatic link generator below to use at your convenience.
