Earlier in this guide, we explored what parts need to be present to create a proxied permalink.
If you want Valdosta State University students, staff, or faculty to access this link no matter if they are on campus or off campus, you will need to create a proxied permalink.
1. Obtain the version of your doi that contains http: or https:
Using the example in the first tab, this version of the DOI looks like: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10734-014-9775-4
2. Add the proxy prefix (in orange) to your DOI or use the OpenAthens Link Generator
Make sure that you're able to access the journal article or book chapter before assigning it as a course reading.
