Library Link Converter

When you have a URL to an article or other resource, and you want someone else to have access to that same resource, you need to give that person the link. It is often the case, however, that the link will fail to work within a few hours, and won't work off campus, because the link is not in the correct format. A link such as:

     http://amso.alexanderstreet.com.proxy2.hampshire.edu/view/1514415

will have to be rewritten to

     http://proxy2.hampshire.edu/login?url=http://amso.alexanderstreet.com/view/1514415

in order for it to work, and

     http://www.jstor.org/stable/pdfplus/27929843.pdf

will have to be rewritten to

     http://proxy2.hampshire.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/pdfplus/27929843.pdf

in order for it to work.


This converter will do that for you.
