Curbside Delivery of Library Materials Now Available
Faculty and staff can now request materials from Seymour Library or the Amott Science Commons and ask that they be delivered for curbside pickup service. Here's how:
1. Go to Knox Primo and sign in.
2. Conduct a search for something you want to place a request on. Click on the title to display the full view of the record.
3. In the menu on the left, click on GET IT.
4. If the item is available for a request, you will see a "Request" link:
Note: Not all items are available for requesting. If you are signed into Knox Primo and there is no Request link, it means the item is not available for requesting.
5. Click on the Request link, then click Send Request.
6. The request will be sent to library staff. When the item is located and the request is processed you will receive an email message saying the item is on Hold for you. You will also receive a second email message from the library asking you when you would like to pick up the item.

Best Practices for Off-Campus Access to E-resources
To create links for web and Moodle pages that allow Knox constituents access to library subscription resources, your links must contain the stem for the proxy server. Precede a URL that you get from a subscription resource with the following proxy server stem.
For instance, the base URL for Choice Reviews Online is http://cro2.org so to make this resource available via the proxy server, add the proxy server stem to it, like this:
When you find an article or book chapter in one of the library's subscription resources and you want to provide that link to students, do not simply copy the address from the browser's address bar. Instead, look for the permanent (sometimes called "durable" or "stable") link on the page.
For example, in JSTOR, the stable link is displayed below the publication information:
Use the stable URL and add the proxy prefix to it. The result will be this link:
