UAL Bookmarklet

Sometimes you want to access library e-resources from off-campus without going through the library website. Maybe somebody sent you a link to a journal article, or you found something through a website. Rather than hitting a paywall, you can use this bookmarklet to quickly authenticate as a University of Alberta student, faculty, or staff, and access the full text (if the Library has an active subscription).  This bookmarlet is installed in a web browser.  This bookmarklet does not work for all resources. If you are still experiencing an issue accessing a particular resource, please search using the Library catalogue, database, or eJournal search engines.
