When you're off-campus, the proxy bookmarklet lets you reload a web page through the Cal Poly Library's proxy server.
If the page you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, using the bookmarklet will enable you to access the resource as if you are on-campus. You will be prompted to log in to My Cal Poly and will be returned to the web page you were on when you clicked the Bookmarklet.
How to use the Proxy Bookmarklet
Simply right click on the bookmarklet link and save it as a favorite or bookmark or click and drag it to your bookmarks toolbar. Then, click on your new bookmark whenever you find yourself at an Cal Poly-subscribed resource that requests a password.
What if it doesn't work?
If the library doesn't subscribe to a particular title or does not subscribe to the resource, you may be still be unable to access the material, or even receive a Proxy Error page. Check out our Interlibrary Services to see about ordering the material from another library.
