Find an article, but get stuck with a publisher sign-in screen? Want a quick way to link into the Ruth Lilly Medical Library’s (RLML) subscriptions? Use our Proxy tool - Bookmarklet.
Next time you are searching or come across an article that didn't get linked through RLML’s subscription, by installing and using the Bookmarklet button in your bookmarks bar, you will be looped into RLML’s subscription. Keep in mind - if RLML doesn't subscribe to the resource, the Bookmarklet tool will not work; the page will refresh without any changes or may take you to an error page.
Follow the instructions below for installing Bookmarklet:
Common Bookmarklet Errors
The bookmarklet will attempt to proxy any website, whether the Ruth Lilly Medical Library licenses the content or not.
If you receive a “Remote Access Error” when you use the bookmarklet on a URL, the most common reasons are:
- The article content is freely available, use the EzProxy Bookmarklet only when you are asked to pay for access.
- The journal article content is not directly provided by the Medical Library from the journal’s publisher’s website, but is provided through different means, example: nothing is licensed at the site:apa.org, however, American Psychological Association content is provided through the PsychINFO (EBSCO) database.
- Check the Medical Library’s e-Journal holdings https://library.mednet.iu.edu/ejournals/
- E-mail ask-a-Medical-Librarian at: email@example.com or use the Library Chat service on the homepage.
- (Least common) The content is accessible via the Ruth Lilly Medical library, but a URL has changed or permissions need to be corrected. Please use the Medical Library’s Access Issues form to report and please note the article reference/journal that you are trying to access.
If the Ruth Lilly Medical Library does not have access to a journal article or print book/book chapter that you need, and you are an IU School of Medicine faculty, student, or staff - please use the Request Articles & Books service.
