Tutorials for Setting up Off-Campus Access

1-Click Access to Library Resources

UAL Bookmarklet

Sometimes you want to access library e-resources from off-campus without going through the library website.  Maybe somebody sent you an email or a Twitter link to a great journal article, or you were searching through Google Scholar.  Rather than hitting a paywall, you can use these bookmarklets to quickly authenticate yourself as a UofA user and access the full text.  It's quick and easy to install in your Web browser.  

Internet Explorer users: right-click this link UA Access and select "Add to Favorites". You may be prompted with a security warning, but it is safe to click "Yes".

Firefox/Safari/Chrome/Opera users: click and drag this link to your Bookmarks toolbar: UA Access

iPhone/iPad: add to Safari on your computer, then sync your bookmarks through iTunes.

Please note that this bookmarklet does not work for some resources.  If you are still having trouble accessing a particular resource, use the library cataloguedatabase, or e-journal search instead.    

Code: javascript:o=location.href;location.href=''+escape(o)
