How to link to e-books and articles in full-text?

The USN Library pays for many of the online resources you use. This works without logging in from the university campus areas. Below is a guide on how to make links that work from home.


To create links that also work outside campus, you can not copy the link directly from the browser. If you want to create links that also work from home, there are essentially two ways to do this:

 

 

Example:

If you want access to an ebook with this URL / link address:

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=1466933&site=ehost-live

... then the full address including the prefix will be:

                https://ezproxy.usn.no/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=1466933&site=ehost-live

 

In practice, it may be easiest to use a notepad and cut and paste in order to put together a working link with prefix.

Please make sure there is no space between the prefix and the link address!
