Migrating to a New Proxy Server for Library E-resources


To enhance the service availability and stability of off-campus access to the Library subscribed E-resources, the Library is pleased to announce that we have migrated our proxy server from EZProxy to EZProxy Cloud on 10 August 2021. After the migration, the current EZProxy domains (https://proxy1.library.ln.edu.hk/login?url= or http://proxy1.library.ln.edu.hk:2048/login?url=) will be switched to (https://lingnan.idm.oclc.org/login?url=).

Most of the library users would not be affected by this migration and no action is required. However, in case you have bookmarked the library resources, you may need to update your browser bookmark accordingly.

Together with this migration, the Library have introduced “Bookmarklet” access button to facilitate your access to our subscribed e-resources. In case you access the publisher site directly from Google or other search engines, you may occasionally be blocked by the vendor/publisher and request you to get pay or login before accessing the research materials. With this “Bookmarklet” widget, our Library Proxy domain (https://lingnan.idm.oclc.org/login?url=) will be inserted into the URL of the books/articles which you are searching for. If the Library has subscribed your requested books/articles, you can access the materials directly.
