Galter Proxy Button

A guide to accessing resources without interrupting your workflow.

Using the Galter Proxy Button

When you are off-campus, the best way to access articles from library-subscribed journals is to sign in to the Galter Library website or NU VPN prior to accessing the journal. However, we know that this is not always the way things happen. Sometimes you try to access an article without having already signed in. When this happens:

If you are on a laptop or desktop computer:

  • Click on the Galter Proxy Button in the bookmarks toolbar of your browser, and you’ll be prompted to sign in to the library website.
  • Sign in to the Galter Library website. If the library subscribes to the journal you were attempting to access, the page you had been viewing will be reloaded through the Galter Library proxy server and you will be able to access the full text of the article.

If you are on a mobile device:

  • Go to your bookmarks and click on the Galter Proxy bookmark.
  • If asked whether to view the Galter mobile site, choose no and you’ll be prompted to sign in to the library website.
  • Sign in to the Galter Library website. If the library subscribes to the journal you were attempting to access, the page you had been viewing will be reloaded through the Galter Library proxy server and you will be able to access the full text of the article.
