Link to Gale in Context Opposing Viewpoints so that content can be accessed on or off campus. The first step is to get a durable link for the article. For most databases, the URL you see in your browser address bar is a temporary link that will not provide access to the article for other users. The durable link will provide on campus access.

Off Campus Access Where EZProxy Prefix Not Provided

  1. The quickest way to get the durable link in Gale databases is to select Get Link option on the tool bar near the top of the page. Copy the durable URL from the box that pops up.
  2. If you want to make the resource accessible off campus (users will need to have a COM account to log in), add the EZProxy prefix directly in front of the bookmark URL with no spaces: https://comlib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=

A link accessible off campus should look like this: https://comlib.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://link.gale.com/apps/doc/A344602980/OVIC?u=txshracd2496&sid=OVIC&xid=818686f9
