How to Create an Everywhere Link

An everywhere link grants students access to library-subscribed electronic resources, just as if they were on campus, no matter where they are. It works by routing the user through the Fairfield University network using our proxy server (

For example, say you want to provide a student free access to a JSTOR article. Instead of linking directly to, an everywhere link uses the proxy server to identify the student with Fairfield University, granting them subscription access to the article.

Step 1. Copy Resource URL

Copy the resource URL from the resource provider’s website (look for something that says “Link” or “URL”, e.g. Permalink, Get Link, Document URL, etc.).

Note: If the resource URL contains “”, then the resource provider (e.g. see ProQuest example below) has already created an everywhere link, and you can skip the next steps.
