Access

When you would like to access literature databases and journal websites outside of an academic institutional network, you can use EZProxy library proxy servers in Papers. Proxy settings are chosen on the Access Options tab.

In addition to choosing a library proxy server, you can also input an authentication URL -- it is simply a shortcut that allows you to log in quickly to the library proxy when you start up Papers.

To build our proxy list we rely on our users providing us with the proxy information for their institution. You can find out what the EZProxy information is from your librarian, so if your institutional EZProxy server isn't included in the list, please email support@mekentosj.com with this information and we will include it on the list!
