Proxy and Off Campus Access

Many citation managers have functions like "find full text", "library look up", or "library access" that may be set up to use the CU Boulder Libraries off-campus access services. To set up, you'll need:

  • A valid CU Boulder identikey
  • Libraries links: URL https://colorado.idm.oclc.org/login?url=      BaseURL/OpenURL http://rp8jq9jy4s.search.serialssolutions.com/

Next, follow the prompts or help documentation from your citation manager, for example: Zotero.

*Adding these settings can sometimes disrupt on-campus use. Disable these settings if you encounter problems.
