Off campus but want to access library resources as if you were here? Try our proxy phrase!
Simply paste the proxy phrase in front of any URL, and you will be routed through Cooper Union's access to it.
Example: Accessing an article from offsite
While researching I have come across an article I'd like to read. However, when I go to the link
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1531-314X.2011.01186.x I am taken to the publisher's website, which asks me to purchase it, or login.
Instead I will paste the proxy phrase in front of the url: https://cooperunion.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1531-314X.2011.01186.x
And I am automatically routed through Cooper's subscription and can download it! Yay!
Instead of copying and pasting the proxy phrase every single time you'd like to check for access, automate the action of prepending your url! We suggest two ways of doing this.
For Chrome the following steps are required:
Make a keyboard shortcut to easily route any page through CU's subscriptions. Simply select any url and input your own keyboard to check for CU Access to any item.
