Easy download of articles from home

If you work from home, you might have noticed the difficulty downloading articles. At least if you don't use the University VPN.

With this little bookmarklet, you can easily download articles you find on the web, without having to search for the article via the University of Gothenburg Library.

How to Install

Just drag the link below and drop it onto your bookmarks in your web browser. You can put it anywhere.

Ezproxy
← Drag and drop to your bookmarks

The next time you find an interesting article you want to download, just press your "Ezproxy" bookmark.

How it Works

This bookmarklet detects what website you're on, and redirects you to the University Library login page. After you login, you are redirected back to the article. This saves you some needless work.

And yes, this is perfectly legal.

Example

Do this to see how it works:

  1. Install the bookmarklet.
  2. Go to http://poq.oxfordjournals.org/content/36/2/176.
  3. Click your "Ezproxy" bookmark.
  4. You will now be redirected to the University Library where you can login. If you're already logged in, you can download the article.
