What is a bookmarklet?


Proxy Bookmarklet

Do you ever get an email with a link to a licensed journal article, only to be denied access when you click on that link?

A bookmarklet is now available for use with the MEDICOR proxy server. Once the bookmarklet is installed following the instructions below, it will allow you to go through our proxy server to access a resource directly from its resource location (if your library subscribes to that resource). This eliminates the need for you to login to MEDICOR to start the proxy server.

You can add one or all of the MEDICOR Proxy Bookmarklets (depending upon your privileges) to your Favorites, Bookmarks, or Toolbar. You can then start using the proxy service to access restricted resources without having to go back to the MEDICOR website. When you are denied access to an Empire Health Services or Sacred Heart Medical Center licensed resource when off-campus, simply click the bookmark, login with your MEDICOR ID and password, and you will be able to access the restricted resource (depending upon your privileges, licensing terms and conditions).

Installation instructions for the bookmarklets are located below.

MEDICOR Proxy Bookmarklet (Holy Family Hospital)

MEDICOR Proxy Bookmarklet (Sacred Heart)

Installation instructions for different browsers:

  • In Internet Explorer: right click on the relevant link above and select "Add to Favorites", or click and drag the link to your "Links" toolbar. You might see a security alert that the "favorite may not be safe", although it is. Click "yes" to continue.
  • In Mozilla/Firefox: right click on the relevant link above and select "Bookmark This Link", or click and drag the link to your "Bookmarks" toolbar.
  • In Netscape: right click on the relevant link above and select "Bookmark This Link",, or click and drag the link to your "Bookmarks" toolbar.
  • In Safari: Click and drag the relevant link above to your "Bookmarks" bar.
  • Note: This is compatible with most web browsers and platforms as long as your bookmarks or favorites allow javascript. The links toolbar may not be visible in all setups and in most browsers, you can enable it in the View->Toolbars menu of your web browser. You can also put it in your bookmarks instead of the links toolbar.
  • Usage notes:

    • Once the proxy bookmarklet is in your browser's toolbar, you should be able to gain access to restricted resources at the click of a button. Once you are on a page that is restricted, click on the proxy bookmarklet in your browser's toolbar, and you will be redirected through the proxy server for the page you are currently at. In some cases you may need to use the browser's "Back" button to return to the resource URL, not the vendor's login/error page.
    • Licensed content is provided by a number of vendors and some content may not be purchased directly from the source you are using. In this case you will need to start from the journal A-Z list to see if we have access to this resource.
