New off-campus tool: EZproxy Redirect
There is another tool now available for use when off-campus to help you access Library resources easily. The EZproxy Redirect, an extension for Chrome and Firefox, available thanks to the efforts of Tom Wambold, lets you re-load a web page with our EZproxy/authentication information so that you can get what you need.
Once installed, you will see a new icon by your browser’s address bar:
If you go a web site such as ScienceDirect or Wiley Online Library, just click the icon and you’ll be able to re-load that page and then you will be directed to log in using either your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password or Library barcode and PIN. After that, you will be able to access any Library-subscribed resources with no troubles!
You can download the EZproxy Redirect Chrome extension here, or if you prefer to use Firefox, you can download that add-on here. We also have videos that walk you through the setup.
This one will help you install and set up the Chrome extension:

We hope this new tool will help you to get to resources more easily, but if you need any help please contact us.
If you need more information about off-campus access, we have a LibGuide that covers that as well.
We also have more videos covering many topics; those can all be accessed either from our Video Tutorials page or on our YouTube channel.
