Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

From the Library Website: Library Links

Start your research at the Library, even when at home! Use the links in HoyaSearch and on the Library’s research guides, and you will be prompted to log in with your NetID and password.

From a non-Library website: ProxyGU boomarklet

If you are on a database or journal website (like jstor.org), ProxyGU will reload your current page through the Library’s proxy server. This allows you to log in without going back to the Library’s website.

ProxyGU  To install in most browsers, drag the ProxyGU button to your bookmarks bar. Learn more about ProxyGU in our Off-Campus Research Guide.

You can also manually type or copy/paste the following string:

http://proxy.library.georgetown.edu/login?url=

Place this string BEFORE your URL (prepend). For example:
https://www.jstor.org should become:
http://proxy.library.georgetown.edu/login?url=https://www.jstor.org
