LibX and You

How LibX toolbar can enhance your library experience

Getting access without opening Research Port

If you make your way to a journal we have access to at UMD but you're off campus, don't worry! You don't have to search for it again in research port to access it.

With the LibX add-on, you can just right click the page and select "Reload ____________ via USMAI Proxy" You will then have the opportunity to log in with your UMD ID and you'll get to go straight back to the article.

With the Chrome version of LibX, you can also click on the Maryland symbol to the right of the browser address, click on proxies, click on reload this page with this proxy, and then log in.
