Add Proxy Information to Article URLs

All of the URLs for articles from the library's databases should have the library's proxy server address added to them. This is so that students can log into our network and access the article from off-campus. If a student is on campus, they will not notice any difference. To do this, add this URL before each database URL:

http://ezproxy.carleton.edu/login?url=[insert URL, including http://, here with no space after the "="]

To make this process easier, you can use the bookmarklet below.

Simply drag the link to your browser's bookmark toolbar. Then, when you are in the "Link to a File or Web Page" form in your Moodle course, paste the article URL into the "Location" box, leave your curser in that box, and click your bookmarklet. The proxy address should automatically appear in front of the database or article URL.
