Ed.D. in Educational Leadership Research Guide: Off-Campus Access

A guide to support students in the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program.

HPU Libraries online resources are available off-campus to those affiliated with the university. You need to go through the HPU Libraries website to access our databases remotely. You will not have full access to HPU-purchased content just searching for the database in Google. Use only links to databases listed in Databases A-Z from the library website.

When you save a link to a library resource, it is important to save only permalinks to resources which will trigger the library proxy login.


What is a Permalink?

When trying to share an article with someone or to access an article from a link, those links need to be of a certain kind, often called a permanent link. A permalink will still work when shared outside of your search session and accessed from off-campus. It will begin with the proxy prefix:

http://libproxy.highpoint.edu/login?url=

If you have a link which isn't working, whoever shared the link with you might not have known about this, and may have simply copied the URL from the address bar at the top of the browser. These links will often not work as they expire after your session ends.

Most databases will put the permanent link for an article in one of their toolbox areas. You just have to look for it.  It might be called: persistent link, permalink, stable URL, document URL, bookmark URL, etc.

In EBSCO, they put it on the right-hand side:

EBSCO Permalink

The proxy log-in screen looks like this:

If you cannot log in to your email and Blackboard, you will not be able to log in to our resources either, and you will need to reset your password to get everything working again. If you know your login is correct, try allowing cookies in your browser.
