Online Library Instruction

Tools, resources, and strategies for adding library instruction sessions to the online learning environment.

Proxifier Tool

Links to library resources with copyright (e-books and database articles, for example) need to be "proxified" in order for your students to have access if they are not signed in to their McDaniel portal. The information on this page explains how to make sure the links you embed in Blackboard are usable off-campus.

For more information about linking to library resources, please visit our Linking to Library Resources page.

If you would like embed a link to one of our e-resources (online article, streaming video, etc.) in your Blackboard course, use this tool to make the link usable from off-campus:

Copy and paste the following URL for off-campus access:

Please contact David Brennan at or phone 410-857-2284 if you need further assistance.

If you have a DOI number that you want to proxify, use the DOI generator here:
