If you often do your research from off-campus, we recommend you install the my.access proxy bookmarklet so you can get immediate access to resources without having to go back and search the U of T Libraries website.
Add this link to your browser's favorites or bookmarks: U of T Libraries my.access Bookmarklet

On your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, Select and copy the entire following line of text:
Tap the action arrow () button at the bottom center of the screen (iPhone, iPod Touch) or to the left of the location bar (iPad) and then tap Add Bookmark. You should see something like this:
The bookmark will automatically be named but you can change this name if you want. Save the bookmark to your Bookmarks folder and tap "Done".
Tap the bookmarks button (it looks like an open book) at the bottom of the screen (iPhone) or top of the screen (iPad). Then, tap "Edit". Find the bookmark you just saved and tap it. Tap the URL field in the bookmarket (it begins with "http://"), select all the text and paste the text you copied in Step 1.
Tap "Done" until you exit the bookmarks folder.
U of T uses a proxy server system known as "my.access" to allow U of T students, faculty and staff to access licensed online resources when they are off-campus, without the need of making any special changes to the settings of the off-campus computer they wish to use.
When accessing a online resource restricted to U of T community members, users will be prompted to:
* One time login for each browser session!
* There is no need to configure/unconfigure web browsers.
* my.access does not conflict with ISP proxies or firewalls.
Questions? Please see my.access FAQs.
Whenever you're on a page that contains restricted content (for example, a publisher's website for a journal):
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 library website or catalogue to see if you have access to this resource.
