Database Access Tools

UI LIB Log-in Bookmarklet

The log-in bookmarklet allows you to log in through the library from wherever you are on the internet without leaving that page. So, say you find an article via Google that asks for you to sign in to access it, just click on the bookmarklet link in your bookmarks bar and this tool will automatically log you in and grant you access, if the library subscribes to the journal or database in which it's held.
