    What is it?

    This shortcut (Lane proxy bookmarklet) gives you access to resources licensed by the library even when you're not coming from a Lane or a Stanford IP address.

    While we'd like Lane to be your gateway to our licensed content, we recognize that links to books, articles and journals come from a variety of different sources (Google, your email, RSS reader, etc.).

    Lane Proxy Bookmarklet in the Bookmarks Bar

    When installed, it will look your browser bookmark.

    At the page you would like to proxy, click the "Lane Gateway to Licensed Content" to invoke it.

    If Lane licenses that content, you'll get access as if you were on campus.

    How does it work?

    This shortcut (Lane proxy bookmarklet) is a combination of a browser bookmark and a JavaScript application. In other words, it's a bookmark that can be programmed to do things. The Lane proxy bookmarklet simply prepends the Lane proxy URL to the current URL in your browser.

    This allows you to view the URL as though you were on campus, giving you access to materials licensed for use by the Stanford academic community.

    If you're not authenticated, you'll be prompted for your SUNetID and password.

    Caveats

    This shortcut (Lane proxy bookmarklet) only works with resources Lane has licensed and configured to work with our proxy server.

    If invoked on a resource we do not license and/or have not yet configured, you will see an error message:

    The Lane proxy server cannot complete your request because this host has not been configured properly.

    We make no attempt to configure our proxy server for every resource, only those we license and for which a Stanford IP address grants access.
