It happens to get to an online electronic resource (an article, a database, etc.) but suddently realize not having previouslybeen authenticated through EZproxy in order to download the full text...

"Proxy on the fly" can solve the problem with just one click!

It will re-direct the web page to go through the University of Bologna electronic resources gateway, which will then allow you full-text access to the content the Library System subscribes to.

 

"Proxy on the fly" works on desktop devices adding a "button" to the bookmark bar or to the browser menu.

1) Bookmarks bar button (bookmarklet)

Activate the bookmarks bar for your browser and enable the javascript (How to enable Javascript on your browser).

Drag and drop the EZproxy AlmaRE button to your browser's bookmark bar.

When you need to "reload" the web page through EZproxy, just click the button on the bookmarks bar; you will be then required to enter your institutional ID and password.

 

2) Browser menu button (extensions)

Download the extension depending on the browser you use and configure it by adding the url https://www.ezproxy.unibo.it/login?url=$@ (see the attached tutorials)

When you need to "reread" the web page through EZproxy, just click the button from the browser menu; you will be then required to enter your institutional ID and password.
