CSHL EZProxy Bookmarklet

Journal Access Off CSHL Campus

CSHL members my access our journal subscriptions, using VPN or EZProxy. The CSHL Journal Holding list from the CSHL Library website and BrowZine, will prefix our EZProxy address onto the journal resource when you are off campus.

What if I'm not starting from the Library website, when I am off campus?

In most cases when accessing an article from an email alert, RSS feed or link from other website, the link will not have the CSHL EZProxy address baked in to the publishers URL link.

Drag this button to your bookmarks toolbar →      Reload via EZproxy

Adding the above button to your web browser bookmark toolbar only needs to be done once. Naturally, you need to make sure the bookmark toolbar is visible

When your are at publisher website that does not recognize you from CSHL, the above bookmarklet will rewrite the URL in your browser's address bar, so that you get authenticated and access the journal through the CSHL network.

If you have never used the EZProxy Bookmarklet before, check out this video from UCFS Library.



You can also manually prefix our EZProxy address onto a journal URL:
