In general we have three options for you:
- Download the articles for personal use
- Use the Reload Button, or
- Create Proxy Links with our Proxy Link Generator
Since most of these are PDFs, you should be able to "obtain" a copy by downloading the article once you have access (through the normal catalog search method). You would then have personal access to the file on your computer until you deleted it.
Second, you could use our "Reload Button". An explanation of how to use the Reload Button may be found @ http://lib.guides.umd.edu/reload-button, but it essentially forces a log-on screen to appear when you are off campus and need to use an electronic resource that the libraries subscribe to.
Third, you could pre-make proxy links that force the log-on screen with each link used/saved using our proxy link generator @ http://lib.guides.umd.edu/linking/proxy
Beyond that, the Linking Guide @ http://lib.guides.umd.edu/c.php?g=326844 is a good resource to look into for an even deeper explanation.
Hope this helps and thanks for using Ask Us!
