Proxy Server Prefix

How To Remove Proxy Prefix From Database URLs:

The links to the subscription online databases first go through the library proxy server for authentication purposes. Here is a typical database URL: 

http://libproxy.uml.edu/login?url=http://www.lexisnexis.com/us/lnacademic

By removing the proxy prefix -- http://libproxy.uml.edu/login?url=h -- the remaining link goes directly to the subscription database:

 http://www.lexisnexis.com/us/lnacademic

On-campus access is authenticated by database vendors recognizing the campus network URLs, so accessing databases directly from within the campus network will be successful if the proxy server is bypassed. This method will not work from off campus.
