The proxy prefix is the first part of the persistent link which allows HVCC community members to access library content off campus. Many library databases include the proxy prefix in the persistent link, unfortunately not all provide linking the same way. Some library resources, for example E-Books from ProQuest E-Book Central and articles from JSTOR will need the prefix added for the link to connect from off campus.
HVCC's proxy prefix is: https://proxy.hvcc.edu:2443/login?url=
A complete persistent URL including the proxy prefix will look like this: https://proxy.hvcc.edu:2443/login?url=https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=a9h
Caution: This generator will add the proxy prefix to URLs that do not need the prefix, like Google Scholar, and URLs that already include the proxy prefix.
