Tips for Accessing Library Resources

Avoid Multiple Logins

  • Only one login is required for each browser session.
  • If on a single user computer, consider leaving the browser window open.
  • If on a single user computer running Google Chrome, change settings “On Startup” to “continue where you left off.” Browser will then authenticate across multiple browser sessions. Other browsers will require you to authenticate each time.

Add Emory Proxy Resolver Bookmarklet

We have prepared a simple bookmarklet that accomplishes this function. Here's what to do:

  1. Drag the Emory Proxy Resolver button to your bookmarks toolbar.
  2. When you need to load a journal article from off campus, click the bookmark. It should route the page through EZProxy and give you access as though you were on campus.

If you are using a mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) or are having issues dragging and dropping the bookmarklet button to your browser's bookmarks, you can also create your own bookmarklet manually. The exact method varies by which browser you use, but you'll want to view your list of bookmarks and ask to create a new one. Give it a name you'll remember easily, and for the URL address, use:

javascript:void(location.href="http://proxy.library.emory.edu/login?url="+location.href)

for information about installation and capabilities.

Access Emory Resources through Google Scholar

  • Set your preferences on scholar.google.com:
    • Click the three-line icon next to the Google Scholar logo
    • Choose "Settings" then "Library Links"
    • Search Emory in the search box and select it.
  • Run your first search, and then select the Full Text @ Emory designation next to an article of interest.
  • Next select the Full Text option from the SFX menu.
  • Select Get authorization and login using your Emory Network ID and Password. If you keep using the same browser for your search session, your subsequent searches in Google Scholar will not require additional logins during the same browser session. (If you have trouble accessing full-text articles, check to make sure that your browser is accepting cookies.)

  • Authenticate with Emory NetID and Password.
  • Leaving the browser open, return to email.
