The Library’s proxy server has been updated in order to address some security concerns and improve performance. The proxy server allows users to access our licensed resources from off-campus. As part of this work, it has been necessary to change the proxy prefix, or the string of text at the beginning of persistent URLs to licensed journal articles, ebooks, and streaming videos. The proxy prefix, added to the beginning of a link, allows MRU students, staff, and faculty to access that content from off campus.
The majority of URLs in Blackboard and WordPress have been updated automatically. However, some older links, or links that are embedded in another document (such as a MSWord document, a Google Doc, or a PDF) will not have been updated. Instructors, please check that your links are working from off-campus, and use the new prefix for any new links you may add to your courses. Our link builder may assist with this.
Old proxy prefixes are:
New prefix is:
If you have any questions about this project or would like assistance updating links, please contact your Subject Librarian, Andrew Reil (firstname.lastname@example.org; 440-7002), or ask at the RLLC’s Service Desk.
We are closing down the Self Check in the current Library space. There is a sign directing patrons to the Circulation Desk to check out their materials. Express Service will start again with our new Self Checks when we open in the Riddell Library and Learning Centre.
