Using the KTHB proxyAccessing journals from outside KTH can be difficult, but thankfully, KTHB has a proxy that you can go through from wherever you are. All you need is a library card (well, the card number to be precise) and pin code for KTHB. Then, you can login to the proxy and access material throught the KTHB website.
The trickMore convenient than going through the KTHB website to use the proxy is to invoke it directly. This is very easy, which I learnt from Aymeric! Whenever you stumble upon a web page that you know that KTHB is paying for, you add ".focus.lib.kth.se" to the domain.
Example: You want to look at
http://www.journal.com/somepaper.htmlChange the URL to
http://www.journal.com.focus.lib.kth.se/somepaper.htmlwhich will take you through a login page for KTHB before you are redirected to the page you want to view.
A bookmarkletThis trick has become so important for me that I had to make it simple to use. I created a little "bookmarklet" which has been verified to work in Firefox and Safari.
Simply drag this bookmark, KTHBproxy, to your browser's toolbar, and you are all set. Whenever you want to add the ".focus.lib.kth.se", you click the bookmarklet and it does the URL edit for you.
