U of T Library Bookmarklet

U of T has off-campus access to research papers and other resources. This is obviously super useful. There are a couple of ways of logging into their web-based proxy service, and they are all annoying. So I made a bookmarklet:

UTL Proxy

Drag this link to your bookmarks bar, then go to a restricted URL like the one I’m currently reading and click it – you’ll be directed to U of T’s central web login page if you’re not cookied already from something like UTORmail.

Once you’re cookied you’ll be able to do this until your session goes idle.

The javascript is pretty basic, but due credit is owed to the University of Manitoba.
