We have switched to this method from WAM (see box below) to this new method of authentication. Look for the part marked in red below in the URL:
Without these parts, the url will not authenticate (that is, provide an opportunity for the student to put in a password) for off campus users. Without the password, access will be denied. You may have to add these elements to a URL to make it accessible to students.
Below is the text in red in a more copy friendly string:
Note: There are some URLs with proxy that don't have the parts at the beginning of the URL:
These are usually generated by the target website and you don't have to edit them.
The DOI can be found in: American Chemical Society, Emerald, Informaworld, Cambridge, Oxford, Sage, ScienceDirect, Springer, Wiley, most Highwire and others. Look around for the DOI (usually on the article launch page or abstract page). Add the data string in red below to the beginning of the DOI for a link that applies EZproxy authentication:
Article from Science
Article from the Journal of Cultural Heratige
Article from the Journal of Labor
Article from Psychological Science
|For Non Cal Poly Users:
You can also make a URL that will "resolve" the DOI to an article launch page without EZ Proxy authentication:
http://dx.doi.org./10.1111/j.1751-0813.2005.tb12721.x this essentially does the same as pasting the DOI into the DOI resolver:http://dx.doi.org/. You might use this is you were making a web based bibliography for the general public: on some campuses, the link will take the user to the subscribed content.
Adding our EZ proxy authentication (see the top box of this page) may also make it unusable. You just have to try it and see.
And keep testing it from time to time.
I have used the following examples for years, and they are URLs just taken from the top of the browser (but I did not apply authentication, so these are not for off campus access).
This method was used for authentication (the password system) for this library. Look for the elements marked in red below in the example URL below:
Without these elements, the url will not authenticate (that is, provide an opportunity for the student to put in a password, and therefore have access) for off campus users. You may have to add these elements to a URL to make it accessible to students.
We will be phasing out this method of authentication system - you may find that your "stable" URL using this method suddenly stops working. It could be that you will have to convert it to the Ezproxy method above.
