Fast access to UoW databases via EZproxy

University of Wollongong uses a software called EZproxy that enables UoW students or staffs to access the academic databases when off campus.

However, it is not convenient to click a lot of links before you get to the database page. Most of time, you will find the paper in the database first via Google or other search engine. Then you goes to the UoW library and find the related papers.

Sometimes, I hate the summon system in the library and prefer going to the database website directly.

So… I wrote a javascript bookmarklet.


  1. Drag the link EZproxy to the bookmark bar
  2. Go to the database website (e.g. SpringLink)
  3. Click the bookmark
  4. Enter your student/staff username and password (ask only once)
  5. Done
