Whether you are new to UVA or simply new to using the UVA Library, whether you are a student, faculty, or staff member, here are some tips, tricks and resources to be aware of to make your experience easier and more efficient.
Select Edit -> Preferences (Windows) or Endnote -> Preferences (Mac) and then select the “Find Full Text” option. Make sure the Web of Science and DOI boxes are checked (and PubMed can be checked as well). To use the library OpenURL server to download articles subscribed to by the library, check the OpenURL box, and insert this into the OpenURL Path box: http://re5qy4sb7x.search.serialssolutions.com/
You can also enter the proxy server address under “Authenticate with: URL:” http://proxy1.library.virginia.edu/
UVA Libraries Reload Button
Doing research off-Grounds? Try out the reload button! Add the button to your browser's bookmark toolbar (see instructions below), and whenever you come across a journal or article you think you should be able to access, click the button to reload the page through the UVA Library proxy.
Drag the button to the bookmarks toolbar or right click and select the "Bookmark This Link" option.
Chrome or Safari:
Drag the button to the bookmarks toolbar. If the bookmarks toolbar isn't visible, press Ctrl + Shift + B (in Chrome).
Right click the button and choose the "Add to favorites..." option. You may get a warning about adding unsafe links. While it's good practice to be wary, we believe this link is safe.
*Note: Reloading the page through the proxy still won't give you access if it's a resource we don't subscribe to. To verify access, look up the journal or database in the appropriate list. Credit to Robin Dasler at UMD for developing this simple, yet key, research tool!
