Solutions to Common Troubleshooting Questions

  • If you are trying to download an article, check the E-JOURNALS page to verify dates that we subscribe. Search this page for electronic journals and conference proceedings.
  • Add the UA Library proxy URL (http://ezproxy.uakron.edu:2048/login?url=) to access resources remotely.
    To do this, get the link of a 
    library resource (article, journal, database, etc.), and follow these steps:

1. Copy the full URL of the library resource and paste into a browser address window (URL#1)
2. Highlight and copy the following string: http://ezproxy.uakron.edu:2048/login?url=
(URL#2)
3. Paste URL#2 IN FRONT OF the URL#1.
The resulting URL should look something like this:

http://ezproxy.uakron.edu:2048/login?url=http://scholar.google.com
4. You will be prompted to enter your UAnetID username and password.
