MLibrary Labs Proxy Bookmarklet
October 16, 2008
The proxy bookmarklet lets you reload a web page through the U-M Library's proxy server. If the page you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, and you're presently off-campus, then you should get you immediate access to the resource once you've logged in with your uniqname and Kerberos password and have been verified to have a valid library account.
Can't wait to get off-campus to give this a try. I can't tell you the number of times I've had to retrace my steps because I forgot to authenticate to the proxy server. This should make life a whole lot easier, thanks!
