Getting to a journal or ebook through the library homepage will always route you through our proxy server.
Alternatively, you can use the "search by citation" tool to locate an article from its citation.
Another way to get your browser to route you through the library proxy server (while off-campus) is to add this "proxy prefix" in front of the URL: http://proxy.library.nyu.edu/login?url=
This new URL will prompt off-campus users to login with their NYU NetID and password, and then give them the same access as they would have on campus.
Another way to get your browser to route you through the library proxy server (while off-campus) is by adding a "proxy bookmarklet" to your browser. Then, whenever you reach a publisher's page for an article while off-campus, you can click on this bookmarklet, and login with your NYU NetID and password for the same access you would have on campus.
