Using the off-campus bookmarklet

If you start your research outside of the library website and land on a resource with access restrictions or a cost to download, click on the bookmarklet. If UIC subscribes to it, you will be directed to login with your netID, or you will see information about getting the article from the UIC Library as a download or in print.

If UIC does not subscribe to the resource, you will see an error message.
