Embedding links correctly is important for remote access, accessibility, and honoring the Libraries' licensing agreements.
Adding the EZProxy URL (easy as 1-2-3!)
1. Copy the URL from the library database
2. Prefix the URL with
http://proxy.library.tamu.edu/login?url=[your URL goes here] (be sure to remove the brackets [ ] )
3. Add the link to eCampus, Canvas, or class website
Tips for Success
The library must license the resource in order to provide access. If the resource you want is not available through the University Libraries, please contact your librarian.
The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a great way to add a URL. DOI URLs can be created by adding the DOI number to the EZProxy prefix. Example:
The Libraries' Quick Search can create the EZProxy URL for you.
Find your resource using the Quick Search box on the on the University Libraries homepage.
Hover over the paper with the magnifying glass icon
Select detailed record.
Click "Permalink" to copy the link.
Embed the link in eCampus, Canvas, or class website.
