Proxy Server Error - Invalid Link

Most library proxy links can be repaired by replacing the old domain name with the new one Information in the old link following the domain stays the same (note that new domain does not include a port number). For example:

  • Old link to Chronicle for Higher Education:
  • New link:

The library proxy server allows patrons to use U of I authentication to log in and access resources as if located on campus. Updated proxy links can be found in our Databases A-Z listings. Please contact our Reference Services ( for help.
