Proxy URL

Some databases allow you to "bookmark" or "permalink" documents. If you are off campus, however, many of these links will not work, as they do not route you correctly through our servers (if at all). To correct that problem, add the following base URL text to the beginning of the "bookmark" or "permalink" URL if such text is not already present:  

https://ezproxy.lib.ou.edu/login?url=

The modified URL will take you to the library's login screen if you are not already logged into our website, or to the bookmarked document if you are on-campus or have logged into our website.
