GT Proxy - Linking to Library Resources

The Georgia Tech Library uses a proxy server for web security. This prevents unauthorized users from entering the library’s databases and eJournals and illegally downloading content.

We offer two different tools to make linking to restricted library resources a little easier:

1) Add GT Proxy Bookmark

This tool allows you to connect to databases and eJournals without going through the library website. It is a "must have" for anyone who starts their research somewhere other than the library home page.

2) LinkMaker

To link to a Library resource (e.g. electronic database, eJournal) on T-Square, WebCT, electronic syllabi or course web pages use this tool to create enhanced URLs.
