After intensive searching, you’ve found the perfect book chapter or article—only to be confronted with a paywall blocking your access. You’re certain Georgetown has access to the site... but how do you tell the website you’re a Hoya and get the full text?
The Georgetown University Library has developed ProxyGU, a bookmarklet that takes the current page you are reading and reroutes it through the Library’s proxy server. This authenticates you as a Georgetown user and gives you access to content paid for by the Library.
The Library’s E-Resources and Serials Unit continues to actively look for ways to make your remote use of Library collections less frustrating and more fruitful. We welcome your questions and comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
