Many library electronic resources - including databases, journals, and e-books - are accessible from off-campus with an Indiana University Kokomo Network ID. In order to access these electronic resources, you must:
There are three ways by which you can remotely access the library's electronic resources from off-campus:
Startnext to "Network Connect" in the browser window. You should be able to see a
Network Connectwindow with information about your VPN connection.
Sign Outin the
Network Connectwindow or in the browser window, if you have left it open.
The Proxy Link Generator (available here) provides an avenue by which faculty and/or instructors may create links for off-campus access to library resources. These links may then be placed within course sites in learning management systems, such as Canvas.
TIP: If you need to report an error message to the library or IT, please be as specific as possible in your message. Helpful details include the name of the Internet browser you were using, what you were trying to do when you encountered the error message, and the complete text of the error message. Even better, send a screenshot of the error message!
Questions about Network accounts or problems with remote access should be directed to the IU Kokomo Information Technology Help Desk at 765-455-9315 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Question: How do I set up links to articles or other resources, such as items from the library databases, for Canvas web pages or other locations so that they work from off campus?
Answer: You need to format the links in a way that redirects them through the EZproxy server. If you do not do this, the links will work on campus but not off campus.
Use this Link Generator to create your 'proxied' links:
