Q. Can I create a link to an electronic library resource that will work off campus?
WMU Libraries uses a proxy server to ensure that remote access to our licensed electronic resources is restricted to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff.
In order to ensure that a link will work from off campus, it is necessary to add the proxy prefix to the URL. You can do this by using our tool for "creating a stable URL."
If you have created a bookmark to an article or e-book while on-campus and then from off-campus you find that it has been blocked or you received an "Access Denied" error, use this utility to add a special authentication prefix to the URL so you can gain access as if you were still on campus.
