Research Bookmarklet

  • Use the EZproxy bookmarklet if you go directly to a journal rather than through the library's website
  • Go directly to a an article or ebook, then click the bookmarklet in your browser toolbar to reload the the page using EZproxy/MyAccess to gain access to UCSF subscribed content.
  • To install on your laptop or desktop, simply drag button or right click > Add to Favorites if using an older version of Internet Explorer.
  • See video walkthough.

Drag this button to your bookmarks toolbar →      Reload via EZproxy

NOTE: When going to another journal or source during the same session, you may need to click the bookmarklet again to trigger UCSF access, but you will only have to enter your MyAccess information that first time. 

Using an iPad or Android device?

The Steps to use EZproxy outlined above are the same. But, if you need to go directly to a journal rather than through the library's website, you might need the bookmarklet. Mobile installation takes a few more steps, but it's simple to use once you have it.
