How to Display Some Restricted-Access Resources (like JSTOR) When Using Internet Search Engines (like Google Scholar)
Internet search engines like Google and Yahoo and Bing index some restricted-access resources to which the Library has a subscription. For example, Google indexes articles in JSTOR. If you are off the Dallas campus when you search via Google, then you will not be able to access the restricted-access materials unless you login to the library proxy server to authenticate your relation to DTS. There are several ways to engage the authentication service.
- One way (the hardest way) is to prefix the following to the links you want to follow.
http://ezproxy.dts.edu/login?url=For example if your search of Google includes a JSTOR article with the following link:
then proxy it by adding the proxy prefix like this (except it must all be on one line, not wrapped to two lines):
http://ezproxy.dts.edu/login?url=links.jstor.org/sici?So you would have to paste the entire line into the adddress bar of your browser. Manually adding the prefix for every restricted link you wish to display is tedious. So consider the following alternatives.
- If you wish to use only Google Scholar, then it is easier to start with the Google Scholar link at the library website. It will force a proxy login, then allow searching via Google scholar. You will not have to manually add any prefixes to links.
- If you wish to use only JSTOR articles, then it is easier to start with the JSTOR link at the library website. It will force a proxy login, then allow searching for any JSTOR article. You will not have to manually add any prefixes to links.
