Off Campus Access

To provide off campus access, you'll need to add a prefix in front of the link so that COM students, faculty and staff can login with their COM account to see the article.

  1. Grab the URL from the article toolbar.
  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://infoweb.newsbank.com/apps/news/openurl?
