SFX is an OpenURL link resolver system. It keeps track of the periodicals for which we have full-text articles available. It allows our databases and research tools to link to articles in other databases.
You can go to SFX to do the following:

If there is an article you want your students to read, sending or posting a link to the article in one of our research databases is an easy way to provide access to it without having to deal with copyright issues (we've taken care of that for you). However, you can't just copy the URL in your browser's address bar, because that URL is often dynamically generated for that particular viewing, and/or that link will not work from off-campus.
Some databases will provide you with a URL that can be used to access the article. That URL needs to be preceded by "http://lccproxy.lib.hawaii.edu:2048/login?url=" to work from off-campus. This proxy server prefix is automatically included in the URL by some databases; you will need to manually add it in front of the provided URL if it is not.
When viewing the article record, click on the Permalink icon on the right side of the screen.
On-campus users will go directly to the article record, where they can view the article. Off-campus users will need to log in with their UH username to prove they are a current Leeward CC student.
ScienceDirect does not provide permanent direct links to retrieve articles from their system. However, they do provide a DOI, or Digital Object Identifier code. You can link to an article by appending the DOI to the end of "http://lccproxy.lib.hawaii.edu:2048/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/"
You can link directly to a journal or journal issue in ScienceDirect by following these directions.
