When creating links to library research databases, articles, e-books, or videos inside Laulima course sites for Leeward CC courses, using a special proxy prefix will allow students to access those resources without having to log in again after they have logged in to Laulima.
Instead of the regular proxy prefix, use this prefix instead: https://laulima.hawaii.edu/libproxy/lee/?
Note – When adding a link to a Laulima Lessons page, you can omit the hostname and use the prefix /libproxy/lee/?
Why this works: Since you need to have a current Leeward CC affiliation to log in to a Laulima course site, anyone who has access to a course site is eligible to use the library's restricted resources. The special proxy prefix allows students who are off-campus to access databases or resources through the library's proxy server without having to log in.
