Greenlease Library subscribes to thousands of e-books and e-journals that are high quality and licensed under specific contractual terms & conditions. Whenever possible, link directly to content rather than uploading PDFs.
The Rockhurst Proxy is the way that students, staff, and faculty can connect to Library article databases, e-journals, and e-books directly from the links within Canvas when they are off-campus. This allows students and faculty to connect to licensed articles, databases, and journals even when they are using an unrecognized IP address.
When linking to library subscription resources within Canvas, add a short URL-like string, or "prepend" to the beginning of all links to library subscription resources, which then prompts for a Rockhurst user login and password.
The prepend is: https://login.rockhurst.idm.oclc.org/login?url=
Please not that the proxy prepend is only needed for content behind paywalls that the library pays to access. Open Access and OER materials do not need a proxy prepend.
