Off-Campus Links to Library Database Articles/eBooks

Permalinks and the MiraCosta College Library Proxy Server

  1. Using Library Databases, locate the link to the article/eBook/etc you wish to link to (in your LMS, web page, an email, etc.)

  2. The link is usually labeled Stable URL, Permalink, or Bookmark (the Browser URL is not always the permalink)

  3. To ensure off-campus access, the URL must redirect through the MCC Proxy Server where users log-in with SURF id and password.

  4. If the URL already contains ".prox.miracosta.edu" you do not need to modify the URL, just copy and paste the link.

  5. To add the proxy server redirect to the URL, follow one of the examples below.

  6. Example: 

http://www.jstor.org/stable/3192433 

becomes,

http://prox.miracosta.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/3192433

or,  

http://www.jstor.org.prox.miracosta.edu/stable/3192433
