Connect to Penn resources through the Penn Proxy bookmark tool. Add a button to your browser's bookmark toolbar, then when you want to view an article off-campus but are prompted for a subscription log-in, simply click the bookmark and enter your Pennkey and Password. If Penn subscribes through that service, the full text article will load. To see other articles during that session or to resume a timed-out PubMed session, just click the bookmark for access without having to log in again. Some full-text articles are available through third-party sources, so check Franklin if the bookmark doesn't grant access.
The Penn Proxy bookmark tool automatically adds the prefix https://proxy.library.upenn.edu/login?url= to any URL, allowing Penn Community members to enter their PennKeys for remote access.
