University of Ottawa (and Queen's U.) Proxy Bookmarklet

For anybody who needs to connect to the Unversity of Ottawa or Queen's University proxy servers to read journal articles etc.., here's the "easy button" way to do it. (but you still need your user id/password)

To easily connect to the University of Ottawa proxy so that you can read journal articles, drag the following link to your bookmarks bar:

U.Ottawa Proxy

Then, browse to your favorite article and just click on the bookmark bar which will redirect you to the same page via the U. Ottawa proxy. This is just a javascript script that grabs the url of the page and then adds the appropriate proxy info and reloads the page. Neato.

And here's one for Queen's University:

Queen's Proxy
