Summary

This is a port of the Chrome Extension developed by Tom Wambold. You can view the source code at https://github.com/tom5760/chrome-ezproxy.

Many universities use EZProxy to allow its students access to various online databases. This extension adds a button to Chrome which allows for a quick way to reload the current page through your EZProxy system.

All it does is pass the URL to your library's EZProxy login URL. For example:

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/

would change to:

http://www.library.drexel.edu/cgi-bin/r.cgi?url=http://ieeexplore.ieee.org
