Linking to Library Material

In order for students to be able to access library content remotely, links to library content must include a permalink, and an EZproxy prefix. A permalink is a stable URL designed to be a long-lasting reference to a web page; the EZproxy prefix routes users through our proxy server that tells vendors to give users access through Lesley.

The easiest way to create a permalink is through @LL Search. Simply search for the title of the resource you want to link to, click on the title of the resource in the results page, navigate to the tool bar on the right-hand side, and select "Permalink," and copy the link that appears. Do not copy the URL from your browser's address bar! This is not a persistent link, and will not work for anyone else you share it with. Check out this screencast for step-by-step guidance:



If you are having difficulties linking to library content, or a link is not working, please fill out this form.

Accessing Library Material

You can access the Library's wide array of electronic resources remotely, but you must be logged in to do so! When you first open a new search in @LL Search, you should be prompted with a yellow bar that looks like this. After clicking on the yellow bar, or if you are starting from a link that starts with an EZproxy URL, you should be prompted with this screen:

Lesley EZproxy login page
















Enter your myLesley username and password. This will authenticate you for the rest of your browsing session (until you close your browser) or 8 hours.
